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.

Aqualung Technical Training

Aqualung Technical Training Course – Level 1

Dry Side Aqualung Technical Training Hosted at Mermaids Dive Center

The Aqualung Technical Training course teaches the theory and mechanism of the Aqua Lung regulator. The Aqualung Calypso first and second stage and Powerline inflator are covered with demonstration of service and maintenance layout.

This was another great course by Aquamaster Thailand taught by Scott McCreadie at Mermaids. Congratulations to everyone who learned how to maintain and service the complete Calypso regulator. Well maintained equipment is required to minimise the risk of malfunction or failure. To have your regulator serviced regularly can be expensive. To be able to service scuba equipment yourself is not only money saving but also a time saver. No more sending your regs away or having to wait for your centre to have staff available! Dive equipment training can be taken at many different levels with Mermaids Dive Center 5 Star PADI CDC.

During the training, all participants performed technical servicing following Aqua Lung standards and specifications. The training was pome day ion length and held at Mermaids head office opposite the divers hotel. The instructor was Scott McCreadie (Aqua Master Sales Manager) and the prerequisite of entry was service technician or Divemasters and above.

With the successful completion of the training participants received a certificate from Aqua Lung authorizing them to perform technical servicing on Aqua Lung equipment (Calypso/Powerline) under the supervision of an authorized Aqua Lung dealer.

All participants received a full set of manuals/schematics from Aqua Master. A website login for free access to exploded views and technical manuals was provided. All materials for courses are provided at Mermaids unless otherwise gained by the students. Contact us here at Mermaids or watch our upcoming news on the site for further details of future technician training.
