GoPro Scuba Diving Instructor Internships From Beginner to PADI Instructor (and beyond) in the most awarded facility in the Caribbean!
If you’re a complete beginner but interested in a new career path as a scuba diving professional, or if you are currently certified as a recreational diver with a certification between PADI Open Water and PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certification from another dive training agency) and you wish to become a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, then we’ve developed the following scuba training packages and internships to help you make your dream come true.
We’re definitely not the cheapest facility worldwide (and don’t want to be!), but we do represent excellent value and affordable Caribbean living, and when you invest in your training and diving with us, we guarantee you will have made the right choice and will benefit for the lifetime of your dive career. Our staff, facility, training programs and options, reputation, and commitment to you separate us from the cheaper and inferior options, and we are here for you long after the course is over! There’s a reason why PADI Americas and Sport Diver (Official publication of the PADI Diving Society) nominated us ‘Best PADI IDC center’ in recent consecutive years, and why many other PADI IDC centers look to us and imitate our programs and offerings.
Our ‘Premium Pro Plus’ program includes the PADI Instructor Development Course, Emergency First Response Instructor and Master Scuba Diver Trainer preparation program. Our ‘Premium Pro Plus’ program will train you beyond a regular PADI ‘Open Water Scuba Instructor’, then, after the Instructor course is completed, we will train you as a ‘Master Scuba Diver Trainer’. We will allow you to intern with our full time Instructors at the Utila Dive Centre on Utila so that you will get to put into practice what we taught you during the IDC under the watchful eyes of our seasoned professional staff. There’s no other facility in the Americas that has daily PADI courses or classes scheduled in a way that will allow you to assist on at least 5 PADI courses, from Open Water to Rescue, and gain invaluable real world experience and organizational and logistical skills. By the end of our internship you will have issued up to 15-25 PADI certifications and can apply for your PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating. You will also have earned a valuable reference from our Career Development Center, which is good for life, wherever you travel in the world as an Instructor.
