PADI Divemaster Internships with Crystal Divers

PADI Divemaster Internships

Learn to love your job and Go Pro with Crystal Divers Bali. Are you passionate about diving and love to share that passion with others?

At Crystal Divers Bali we conduct our Divemaster programs as an internship where you can truly immerse yourself in the dive industry and achieve your full potential as a dive professional. During your Divemaster Internship you will work with real certified divers and students under the direct supervision of our senior instructor team and be mentored by our Platinum PADI Course Directors.

As you progress through your Divemaster course, you’ll expand your diving knowledge and skills and increase your confidence developing the most important skill of all – good judgement. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems, as well as helping others to improve their scuba. You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or series of practical training exercises.This takes time and practice and we generally recommend Divemaster Internships of minimum 4 weeks.
