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.

TEC Trimix Diver 90 Training

The Tec Trimix Diver Course changes experienced tec divers into extreme divers. During the training, you’ll make dives as deep as 90 metres/300 feet, use multigas trimix computers, & handle up to 4 stage/deco cylinders.

Description

Many of Mermaids technical divers move on to this extreme depth training. Are you ready for the outer edge of technical diving? The Tec Trimix Diver course takes experienced tec divers and turns them into extreme divers who go deeper and visit pristine sites where few others will ever go. During the course, you’ll make dives as deep as 90 metres, but once you earn this tough certification, there are few limits. Your training teaches you to build experience gradually and you do it because you’ve made it this far and have more exploring to do. For this training you will be visiting the famous Samesan Hole. The Hole is reached after 45 minutes sail from Samesan Port just south of the dive centre.

To enroll in the Tec Trimix Diver course, you must:
  • Be a PADI Tec 50 diver or Tec Trimix 65 diver
  • Have a minimum of 150 logged dives
  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
Academic:

The Tec Trimix Diver course emphasizes mission application:

  • Gas selection options, especially deco gases

  • Using multigas trimix computers
  • Handling up to four stage/deco cylinders

<5>Equipment:

You’ll use full technical equipment, including more than two stage/deco cylinders, and you may use a technical sidemount configuration. At Mermaids we will work through your equipment setup in detail. Generally by the time a diver gets to the Tec 90 Trimix they know the preferred configuration – however it is an area that should always be re-evaluated.
