We do not use our Divemaster interns as free labor like many dive centers do, where you work in the dive shop and do the minimum number of dives. The purpose of your internship is to learn as much as possible about the job of a diving professional with hands-on experience working alongside dive professionals. As each internship is custom designed for each apprentice, there are some differences in the exact package. Book your interview with Kiwidiver’s Course Director Kevin Black today and allow us to customize a package for you.
The Internship includes special discounts on PADI Materials, diving equipment and liveaboard trips while you are training with Kiwidiver.
