We don’t offer FREE divemaster internships, or divemaster internships in exchange for work. The reasons are:
You can start your divemaster course at home by registering yourself at the PADI website for the online Divemaster program. This programs takes you through the academic part of the divemaster course by text, pictures and videos. It costs a bit more comparing the other way of studying the theory at our tropical paradise. But if you are time limited or you don’t like to study under the sun, this is the best option. Have a look at the divemaster eLearing part at the PADI website.
There is also another online program that you can take. It is called the Online Dive Theory. Here we will test you the 5 sections of the theoretical part of the diving knowledge of the instructor course. Your diving knowledge will be straight away at the same level as a dive instructor. This will be a huge advantage if you like to become a dive instructor in the future.
But if you don’t have the time at home to study, during your divemaster training at our dive resort there will be time enough for studying the theoretic part of the diving course. The divemaster course is a flexible course, so we can make a tailor made diving course for you.
