Pattaya Scuba Diving Internship 

Pattaya scuba diving internship

Pattaya scuba diving internship packages are sold around the world as a multiple-dive-course package deal that takes you from your current scuba diving level to PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructor. The real value of an internship is the experience gained while taking the courses that will lead you to be a working PADI Dive Instructor and at Real Divers we have the experience and knowledge to teach you how to be the best.

It is also possible to do internships to Master Scuba diver level which is the highest ranked non professional.

The “Pay-As-You-Go Package” scuba diving internships packages enable you to pay as you progress through the PADI system, saving you the financial heartache of having to part with thousands of dollars/ pounds/ euros in advance.

Pattaya Scuba Diving Internship 

So you really fancy the idea of becoming a PADI scuba instructor?

“What heaven it must be…

Just jump on a boat and sail to a tropical reef

Loads of friendly customers
Go Scuba diving
Back by 3pm.
Swift pint or two and get ready for Pattaya’s nightlife.”

Well, we know that this is often a customer’s view of life as a dive instructor.

There are plenty of dive schools that won’t try to disillusion any instructor candidates who might share that view. They are ready to offer you the key to this wonderful world with a diving internship. In just six months you can go from novice to become a PADI professional instructor.

They will make promises that sound too good to be true – and you know what they say about something that sounds too good to be true…In reality, it’s an expensive minefield out there. You could easily lose an arm and a leg.

Be warned, some internships can seriously damage your wealth! with hidden costs and tying you into long term inflexible contracts, its a lot of money to put down without knowing everything.

To make sure you get the best deal, we will take you behind the scenes and reveal some of the factors we believe you need to know.

After this, you’ll be in a much better position to judge the quality of each course you check out and understand why the costs of an internship around the world vary from the US $7,000 to $14,000.

“Why Real Divers?”

Why is Real Diver’s Pattaya scuba diving Internship so much better? Both Peter and Neil Chandler went through the whole PADI system from Open Water diver to PADI Dive Instructor in the late nineties and had the inspiration 20 years ago to create the original novice-to-instructor internship. Pete launched the first novice to instructor course in Thailand at a large dive shop where he then worked. This same internship concept has been adopted & changed by huge numbers of dive shops worldwide.

One important factor of our internship is that we prepare you to be a professional in the dive industry, we show you exactly how it works and the costs therein. At Real Divers, you get taught by the bosses who won’t hold back vital information that will help you in this wonderful dive industry!

Many dive shop instructors won’t teach you this information because they just see it as a course and in truth don’t want to show you how to take their job or just don’t know the information themselves because “nobody showed them”.
We see it as preparing you properly for your new chosen way of life.

Our offer to you – we promise to show you everything that you need to help you make the best possible decision when choosing your internship and your dive career.

We are confident that the Real Divers instructor internship will be educational, life-changing, fun and you will meet many good friends on the way. We also promise you that we offer the best value for money for those divers that want to be employable Instructors, work in the Dive Industry and we usually take the best internships to work with us at Real Divers.

“The Deal”

The deal is simple: You don’t pay $7,000-15,000 before arriving in Thailand to do a diving internship with the course accommodation and an equipment set already packaged, like most dive centers do.

We consult with you about what level you want to get to and advise you which courses you should take to get there plus how much it will costs.

We will not just set you up with a basic set of new scuba diving gear on arrival which later you will find inadequate for a Dive Instructor. We allow you to try different types of equipment as you go through your courses before you decide what you dive best with and then arrange it as part of the internship.

So basically this is a completely customizable internship that allows you to go into your spending with your eyes wide open as to what you are getting.
