WHAT IS AN INTERNSHIP AND WHAT WILL I DO?
Many people wonder what we mean by an internship. What is it means is you will learn on the job. The Divemaster Internship is not a structured course with a set timetable. You are welcomed as part of the Kirra Dive Team, and work as part of the team throughout your training with us. There are quite a few different aspects to what you need to learn to be a competent dive professional. Many of these skills are do with your judgment. You will have some classroom sessions and some in-water skill development sessions with one of our experienced instructors, but a huge amount of what you will learn be learned by shadowing our staff and gradually taking on more and more responsibility as your training divemaster training progresses. What it doesn't mean is its free! We do not offer free courses in exchange for labor. Our instructors spend a lot of time coaching and advising divemaster trainees, the time they put in is too valuable to give away for nothing.
Judgment is not taught, it is developed through coaching and mentoring.
In your time with us, we will ensure that you gain experience assisting a seasoned PADI instructor in many aspects of a dive professionals job. This will including assisting on training at all levels from Discover Scuba Diving through to the Rescue course. You will assist by guiding certified divers of differing abilities at different sites in varying conditions.
All of these skills are better learned by working with actual customers in real life situations. We don't know in advance what customers we will have at any given time, what we do know is that over a period of time we will be able to expose you to the experiences you need to become a knowledgeable, confident divemaster.
