The role of a dive professional does not finish when everybody surfaces after the dive – we will instill in you the value of good customer service, and this is not over until the last guest walks out of the door.
No two days at the dive centre are the same. During your internship, problem-solving and solution-thinking skills will be tested on a daily basis as we adapt to the specific logistical challenges of the day.
Unfortunately, anecdotes abound of Divemaster Interns spending their days mopping the floor and cleaning the windows. We have a cleaning lady who does that! Day to day you’ll help us to keep the dive centre tidy so that our guests form a strong first impression, but primarily your work will be focused on the diving!
Make no mistake – you will be working hard! Whilst completing your internship your role will be much closer to that of our staff than of our customers. This means you will be meeting and greeting guests as they arrive, providing welcome briefings and answering any questions they may have. You will assist our staff in controlling the flow of people and equipment to ensure the smooth operation throughout the day.
You will be expected to assist in all aspects of the daily operation of the dive centre in just the same way that our other staff are – after all that is what this job involves! Working in the dive industry is incredibly rewarding and has innumerable perks, but it is not for the feint of heart. If you are not ready to commit to that then consider a different profession.
Our aim is not to simply put you through the formal PADI training, but to ensure you understand how this training is applied to the working world once you have finished your internship. The experience you will gain from diving every day in a variety of dive sites, providing different activities tailored to specific guests, is the very best preparation you will find for working in the diving industry.
