PADI IDC Internship

Posted on 21st April 2021 at 3:32 pm

Its possible you will start looking for locations to do your PADI IDC with Internship in the coming months / years, here is an example of what you could ask your PADI CDC

Subject: PADI IDC internship

I am a Italian who is 35 years old, doing my Divemaster internship in Egypt with Camel Dive. I started diving August last year and got hooked
I’m now with 190 logged dives and I’m looking for a place to do my IDC combined with an internship. I love the idea to do it in a hot climate.

I’m multilingual (Italian mother tongue, fluent Spanish, intermediary German and English).

Certified yoga teacher and ayurvedic masseur, graduate as fashion designer (department manager) but also experienced with hospitality (hotels and  restaurants).

I would like to ask if there is a special package for IDC / internship for those who already have the PADI Divemaster and would be even better if there is a possibility to work somehow in the dive center as part of the payment for the IDC.

Lots of PADI Divemasters wanting to do IDC

Posted on 1st April 2021 at 6:39 pm

Typical PADI CDC email questions, this is a good example of what you can expect to receive and take it from me you spend a lot of time talking to potential candidates via email so hopefuly these give you an idea of what to expect

Query 1
I recalled diving with you back in early 2000 when you were my dive guide then. How are you doing?

I am currently “stuck” in one of the middle east working. As my job requires me to be station here for sometime, I thought of taking up PADI IDC as my personal milestone. I would like to know if you can give me any PADI IDC and IE Exams to practice on

Therefore I reckon that I could consider taking both EFRI and AI here, the course would require me to get the manual together with the decal (estimated to be 2.5~3K USD).

Unfortunately, over here in Qatar, the highest they can teach me is up to Assistant Instructor. So checking with you on the cost of IDC/IE +OWSI course.

Or it will be better if I were to take all under your but need to know the duration as I am not a practicing DM but active diver.

Query 2
Hello I’m very interested in your internship program, I’ve finished my PADI dive master certification last month and about to finish EFRI by February. How would we work out a pricing for an IDC in your currency?

Query 3
Hello, we are a Spanish couple, we are Dive Master, we work in 2019 in Koh phi phi for 7 months, right now we are working in Spain as Dive Master, we wanted to see the possibility of doing the idc intership with you, we want to know how many months it would be and if it would be 100×100 free, and some more things hahaha … thanks and we hope to hear from you soon !! many bubbles

Query 4
I’d like to know about the PADI Dive Centre management course you mentioned in your site. I see it as an 8 days course and the content looks good. I was wondering if it’s possible to do it online, if not, when is it possible to take it?  And last but not least, how much is the total cost? There’s any kind of certification? Hope to hear from you soon

Query 5
I live in Belgium. I’m diving now since 2014 and I felt in love with it from the first moment. I’ve done my Open Water in Crete, AOW in Egypt, and rescue and divemaster in Tenerife. Now Im looking for a the next thing to make my dreams come true, and that is to become a Scuba Dive instructor.

But I’m looking for an internship of 3 months were it’s possible to have a lot of experience and at the same time achieving my certification of IDC. Last year I’ve been in Tenerife for 5 weeks to complete the internship of PADI Divemaster. But now I’m looking for the next step.

So my question was if you guys give the opportunity to do Interships for idc courses as well?

Query 6
Im a PADI Divemaster/ CMAS ** Instructor and was looking to do a PADI OWSI, can you please provide me with more Details «Prices, Dates…etc» or if you have an internship.

Query 7
I am looking for a PADI Divemaster job. Spain or any country. I am the Padi DSD Leader. I speak English and have worked in several countries.
I have about 1,500 dives, I have the PER and an official lifeguard title. I am available from July 1 and I am looking to do some internship or something similar to do the instructor course.
I have worked in Spain, Mexico and Panama as a divemaster.

Query 8
I was hoping you could advise me on what PADI IDC courses you have available in the coming months.

I’m SSI Divemaster and ideally looking for an internship but would be interested in knowing the cost of courses.

Also, if you have any openings on your team for an Instructor, this could present a unique opportunity to undertake training with you in advance of starting the role and give you the opportunity to trial and train me in a way which would be best suited to benefiting your team?

I can provide, previous internship and employment references and any more information that might be useful.

Query 9
I am looking for a PADI dive position in June and would really like to come and work with you guys. I am an extremely hardworking and passionate instructor, I especially enjoy teaching professional courses. I have worked in Thailand before on Phuket and Koh Tao so I have experience with thai culture. Attached is my resume and if you would like any additional information please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you.
