What does the internship include?
Things which may, or may not, be included in your internship
A divemaster course requires some essential tools, manuals, and a final certification if you hope to actually work in the industry. Any or all of these can be extra costs, so it is definitely worth checking!
It’s usually expected that divemaster trainees arrive with most of their gear. And let’s face it, if you’re planning to become a professional diver, there’s really no reason not to. But sometimes this isn’t possible. In which case, you’ll need to know what you can borrow, rent or buy from the dive center and how much it might cost.
3. ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD
Some divemaster internships will offer accommodation and food. This is often the case if the opportunity is on a remote resort or a liveaboard.
This might sound weird, but sometimes there is no guarantee that you will get to dive when you want. You don’t want to arrive at your dive center only to find there are all kinds of restrictions placed on your diving.
The 3W Divemaster Internship
The philosophy of our divemaster internship is a simple one. We won’t release divemasters into the industry who we wouldn’t employ ourselves. That’s why we offer up to 6 months of diving to build your skills, even if you finish the course in two. Our internship may not be free but we go beyond divemaster basics and teach you all the tricks of the trade. Only then will you to put it all into practice during the rest of your stay.
See you on the island.
