Thailand Diving Internship Request

Posted on 14th September 2017 at 12:25 pm

Can anyone want to offer this couple any positions in Thailand?

My husband and I are currently in the process of completing our PADI IDC here in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, on the Red Sea. Upon completion, we will be certified as OWSI. We are looking to find employment in the diving industry, and we are planning on moving to Thailand in December. Our plan is to stay in Thailand for the season (until April or May).
We also hold specialty certifications in:

Rescue Diver
Deep Diver
EFR (Adult and Child)- Instructor
Project Aware: Dive Against Debris

I saw on your website that you offer an internship program for TecDiving. We are interested in learning about TEC40, 45, 50, Sidemount, Gas Blender, etc..

I would be very interested in finding out more information about how this works. My questions:

How does the internship program work?
Upon completion of the internship, are you able to offer us employment?
What is included, and what isn’t?
What would be our daily tasks/requirements?
Most importantly, are you able to accomodate 2 people for an internship this season?

Any additional information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

Experiened Divemaster wants work in Palau

Posted on 8th September 2017 at 11:30 am

Hey there, I recently came across your listing on google regarding the Divemaster wanted, I was hoping if you could patch me up with Alan and I could take it forward from there.

I am a very enthusiastic and a passionate  active Dive Master with about 2 seasons of experience in the Andaman Islands located in India at the finest 5 star PADI’s IDC Centre called Barefoot Scuba. I have over 900+ logged dives and my own set of SCUBA equipment including a computer+compass. I also have my own insurance including 40 students every year that are insured with Divers Alert Network.

I have been a key employee with handling guests, both on the boat and during the rest of the excursion. I do posses great knowledge of how to handle the day to day tasks of a busy dive center in an orderly fashion, apart from leading dives and excursions, I also have excellent relations with my guests, in the water and out of the water. I believe quality over quantity and hence have an immacluate safety record.

I tend to work with people in a friendly fashion yet never compromising on the quality of service given to the guests. I am also qualified as a SCUBA technician and can make sure the gear we run is up to date and periodically maintained.

The recent boat laws in India have been re-molded and now we are facing serious trouble with taking guests on our boats to our dive sites and other excursions hence hampering our jobs for the coming season. As a result, I am encapsulating this email and I do look forward to be working with you for the coming soon.

I am very comfortable spending long days on the boats and have a fairly good knowledge about the marine life and ecosystem. I am also very keen on doing other outdoor activities and can primarily work in any given conditions.

Would be great to hear from you soon

Want to buy a Website for a Phuket Dive Centre?

Do you want to receive enquiries like this? Are you already an Instructor, want to Live in Phuket, Thailand? if this is the case look at this Phuket PADI IDC website that is for sale

Your company and courses were recommended to us by one of your previous IDC students, who is a university friend ours. We are looking for a quality instructional dive facility with optimal instructor to student ratios in order to further and begin (respectively) our PADI certifications. Our ideal timeline is between January and April 2018.

One of us is a marine biologist with her Divemaster certification with over 285 dives logged and has spent a great deal of time in different marine environments around the globe.

I, on the other hand, have no prior scuba diving experience. However, that said I have worked on the water as a commercial river guide and multi day SUP guide for over 15 years in both marine and fresh water environments. We are both avid sailors with our own boat, Canadian Commercial vessel operators permits for 15 and 40 ton vessels, completed several first aid certifications and have a high level of comfort, respect and love for the water. We are competent learners and thrive in a course type environment.

My partner is interested in furthering her DM certification to complete a full PADI IDC whilst my goal is to obtain my DM.

We would like to receive information on available course dates, costs and estimates for services and equipment included and not included. Any recommendations for long term accommodation and best locations for these would also be appreciated. We would like to leave Canada in late December up to mid January with the idea that our certification would take 10-14 weeks. We are currently exploring options and would like to have a decision made within the next 30-45 days.

We are flexible with timelines and accommodation and in the event that my certification/courses take longer then my partners, she is interested in any related work that may be available. We are excited to hear what our options are!
