Apprentice Dive Instructor Internships

In the interest of maximum quality the free course is not integrated in the internship itself but given as formal separate program taken afterwards, along with the paying customers we also have, and of the exact same standard.

In exchange for this as PADI diving instructor intern and apprentice you participate fully in those dive center tasks as assigned by the manager.
