Scuba diving internships are not a new phenomena but the amount of fun during education has never been rivaled. To go from never having dived before, or whichever certification you currently are, to becoming an accomplished scuba diving professional is the challenging and rewarding path you will follow.
Calypso Dive and Adventure Centre is a PADI 5 Star National Geographic Career Development Centre. We offer a fantastic full time in house career development course ‘FROM ZERO TO HERO’, where each candidate can decide whether to leave us as a PADI Divemaster or a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
If you have already done a Diving certification then you will be given credit for that portion you have already completed. If you are a qualified Divemaster then you can do your PADI Instructor course without doing the CDC course.
The courses include a lot of diving in between skill training, self study, knowledge work groups, lectures, exams, practical training and dive business management. Our CDC’s will run for 4 months with an additional 2 months for those who wish to be certified as PADI Scuba Instructors.The course starts to suit your program. We do not have specific intakes.
Working with scuba equipment everyday and dealing with customers with new questions will develop your diving general knowledge far beyond the level of divers who have been diving for many years as holiday divers.
There are always PADI professionals available to assist with any questions that you have – basically it is total immersion within the diving industry for an extended period learning all aspects of the dive industry that you have subscribed to.
On becoming a PADI Professional you will be an invaluable asset to any dive centre worldwide. Scuba Diving is an exciting, dynamic recreation that supports a fast growing worldwide industry with many professionals and opportunities. Owning and operating a Dive Centre or resort, working fulltime on a live-aboard boat or teaching in an inland or resort environment are just a few possibilities. A scuba diving career can break you out of a nine-to-five office job, or provide you with an enjoyable part-time vocation. It is a great way to see the world while working.
