Our career development program focuses on developing the candidates from the very beginning to follow safe and role model dive practices grooming them for leadership levels of training.
The internship can be adjusted to suit the individual candidate as they grow throughout the program. The program itself should be seen not only as an internship but as a long term commitment towards a goal that will provide each candidate with a set of skills that will not only benefit them in the scuba diving industry, but in any field that they may pursue . The skills learnt develop leadership qualities, a keen sense of management and problem solving. All the time while working towards earning a qualification that can be used worldwide to gain employment and travel.
