Instructor Development Course Internship

If you've recently become a divemaster or feel that you would like to spend longer than a couple of weeks with us then our IDC internship may be the right option for you.

How long will it take?

The Internship lasts for a total of 3 months and is broken down as follows:

  • Month 1: Shadowing, learning the dive sites & practising guiding certified divers plus settle into life on Mabul and prepare for your IDC.
  • Month 2: 2 week IDC and 2 week instructor training - during this time you will shadow our experienced instructors, develop your own teaching style and prepare to teach your own courses
  • Month 3: Your goal for this last month is to certify your first 20 students! This will be a great asset for your CV and will allow you to apply for different Instructor specialty ratings depending on your previous experience as a diver.
