PADI Scuba Internships – Advanced Open Water certified to PADI Instructor
If you’re currently a PADI Advanced Open Water certified diver (or qualifying certification from another dive training agency) and you wish to pursue a professional path to becoming a PADI Instructor, then we’ve developed the following PADI scuba internships to help you make your dream come true by embarking on a professional dive career. Our PADI diving internships include the PADI EFR/Rescue Diver course, the PADI Divemaster course, and the PADI Instructor Development course.
If you have a PADI Advanced (or equivalent agency), then you can start with the PADI EFR/Rescue course (any day any time!!!) and continue all the way through to PADI Instructor in approximately 7 weeks. Our scuba diving internships are a great way to gain additional experience (which you need to enroll in the PADI IDC with us). If you are short of the 40 dives, then we do include unlimited diving with our program as you need to have 40 logged dives to start the Divemaster course. So depending on how many dives you are short, we will scheduled a pre-week to the Divemaster program where you start getting involved in coral reef surveying, logging dives and improving essential dive skills like your buoyancy control and air consumption. This pre-week will take you up to the required 40 dives. We recommend an early reservation as we do have limited spaces/materials and small group sizes.
For Advanced Open Water certified divers (or equivalent), the Rescue to Instructor (7 week program) Cost $4572 includes 7 night’s accommodation in Mango Inn hotel, 2 months reef fees, log books, course manuals, new 2018 Instructor manual/Divemaster crew pack, Instructor course IDC crew pack, EFR Instructor manual, Rescue pocket mask, RDP’s (Table and E-RDP ML). PADI fees are included in quote but are paid direct to PADI with credit card at time of application and not to Utila Dive Centre.
Our Premium Pro Plus package includes the MSDT (5 specialty Instructor course) module, with all fees and materials and optional internship costs a total of $5903 with total savings of $1040. Also with our Premium Pro Plus package get free PADI 02 Instructor, Adaptive Diver Instructor, PADI ‘Resort Operations Specialty’ training and certification and ScubaPro Technicians course with our GoPro 6.0 promotion.
A complete set of scuba equipment from Scubapro can be purchased with this package, including a full set of MK25 regulator and dive computer and all other gear from head to toe, with duffle bag. Reduced from MSRP of $3500 to $2500, an amazing unmatched offer and great saving!
We’ll provide 7 nights dorm style accommodation in our hotel the Mango Inn when you first arrive on Utila, giving you plenty of time to find a suitable apartment. We would estimate living expenses, including food/rent (based on sharing an apartment), at $800 per month. So for between $6-10k (depending on whether you choose the equipment package and/or MSDT and IYT options) you can have 2-3 months living on a Caribbean island, become fully trained in a new career as a PADI Instructor, enjoy amazing diving, and obtain a full set of scuba equipment. This is just the beginning of a great lifestyle change.
There’s never been a better time to train as a PADI Divemaster or Scuba Instructor, with a growing dive industry worldwide, but also in recent years the expansion and growth of the yachting industry and recreational super yachts, makes this the perfect compliment to enhance your dive training and employ-ability in dive resorts, and on day boats, liveaboard vessels and super yachts worldwide. We encourage early enrollment on these courses as we have very limited spaces, please inquire for costs and scheduling.
