Work opportunities

As a PADI MSDT, you demonstrate to a dive employer that you have good experience in teaching diving and also can teach a range of specialty diver courses. This makes a dive center or resort more likely to offer you a position. While we can’t guarantee a full-time position the day you complete your IE, we believe we train the very best and will always try to hire our own candidates if there is an opening. We look for passion, enthusiasm and an exemplary attitude – all which we hope to see during the IDC!

Opening for employment may be possible at all our dive centers or our liveaboard, the Deep Andaman Queen. For those who continue with the Internship, we do guarantee work as freelance Instructor (with schedule dependent on customer flow).
