Dive Master Internship

In 1999 Mermaids Dive Centre created the Worlds first Dive Master Internship. The diving industry required a more professional approach to the training of a dive pro and we took the lead. Diving instructor internships followed allowing Dive Masters to progress into scuba diving instruction seamlessly.

All of Mermaids scuba diving internships are FULLY inclusive of agency fees, unlimited diving, full equipment (to keep), dive courses, training, materials and accommodation. Being ALL-Inclusive allows you the professional diver in training to concentrate solely on education and experience. We want you to become the very best diving pro possible and enjoy a wonderful life working in the scuba industry.

Located in Thailand Mermaids offer Dive Master and Dive Instructor training 365 days per year. With a year-long diving season we’re well placed to receive divers any time that is convenient to them. The local diving creates a perfect training ground with several penetrable ship wrecks, deep and shallow coral dives, slack and ripping currents – we have a wide range of diving experiences on our doorstep.

Diving internships allow you the ‘wet-side’ training in order to be a diving professional. Additionally Mermaids operate dry-side scuba repair training in the form of dive equipment maintenance and servicing. We offer a Scuba Engineer Internship that includes diving equipment, compressor strip down, engine rebuild, scuba tank testing and much more. Dry-Side scuba skills are looked at by diving employers very favourably.

If you are looking to become the very best dive pro possible then Mermaids can assist you with your dream. It is our goal to make you as employable as possible as a diver and work prepared. Mermaids have hundreds of ex-interns working throughout the world within the diving industry.

Congratulations to all of the scuba dive instructor candidates that participated within the July 2012 dive instructor development course and further more on to the PADI instructor exams! All passed giving a 100% pass rate!

You have ever right to be proud of your achievement. It takes a lot of dedication, study, practice and ultimately unflawed dive skills and knowledge to pass the instructor examinations set by PADI. The examinations are as hard as they have even been yet Mermaids dive always produce a great result. A lof of the dive instructor candidates success can be out down to the amount of experience that can be gained during the instructor training internship operated here. It allows not just the course content to be learned but all to be practiced over and over again – repetition learning to an extent. Many of the skills the divers can perform blindfolded as come so naturally to them. The hardy training at Mermaid dive center will assist all of the divers that wish to work in the industry the opportunity to find their ideal dive job.

Mermaids professional approach to the scuba diving instructor training gains us great results that are witnessed by the industry time and time again. If one is training to professional dive master or instructor we believe that the training should be thorough and tested at any time. Due to this we can keep you on your toes as divers and assist in keeping the examination results consistently strong. Mermaids are renowned for our tough IDC (Instructor Development Course) which ultimately allows the actual PADI Instructor Examinations to seem like a breeze.
