Divemaster Internships

Welcome to Cozumel!

Have you decided to start a fun adventure and become a Divemaster? If so you will have the experience of a lifetime. Our Divemaster internship program is the right choice for you. During your work with the dive crew on board the many daily dive trips, you will be side by side with REAL divemasters working at a PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) 5 Star IDC Dive Resort. Having this working relationship will enable you to gain experience only found with us in Cozumel, Mexico.

No other location or training facility in the Caribbean or Central America can offer you this type of training.

Cozumel’s location in the clear, warm Caribbean waters located on the world’s second largest barrier reef (Mesoamerican barrier reef) has walls, swim throughs and the best variety of corals, sponges and marine life.

As part of your training you will be exposed to many different opportunities to participate in the PADI Project AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility and Education) foundation. This can include beach and underwater clean ups as well as discovering the Turtle sanctuary marine biology research foundation conducted only here on Cozumel.

We work very closely with the Marine Park National of Cozumel in helping control the diver flow in and out of the park.

Cozumel is ideal for your training to become a Divemaster. We offer the most flexible monthly Divemaster Internship program anywhere. Our Internships start on the 1st and 15th of every month and last from 4 to 8 weeks depending on your diving certification level upon entry.

In order to enter the program we will need you to fill out an application and be approved. We are selective in the candidates we choose since our spaces are limited and our program is popular. Your application will be reviewed in one day by our staff and we will reply directly to you the next day. Each application is read and reviewed carefully.

Consideration is given to each and every candidate with respects to amount of dives, current certification level and essay portion of the application. Non-divers are categorized differently and spread to different phases of the program.

Please note that being a non-diver does not disqualify you.

Our PADI Divemaster Training internship is of the highest quality and the education you receive with our PADI Course Director and instructors will make you the most skilled and knowledgeable diver when finished. Our philosophy is to pay attention to details and follow PADI standards. These are the key elements that makes our program stand out above the rest. Safety is always a concern during training and is never compromised.

That is why you are trained by only the best and most experienced staff of instructors in Cozumel. Most of your in water training is conducted by a PADI IDCS (IDC Staff Instructor) as well as other Instructors with the knowledge and experience to give you all the education and training you need.

We offer all PADI scuba diving courses from beginner to Divemaster and Scuba Instructor level courses. Don’t worry if you are not a certified diver. We still want you to take the courses necessary to be a PADI Divemaster here in Cozumel. With the schedule of training and relaxed pace of life on the island you will have plenty of time to finish all required courses and put in many fun dives in the time frame suggested so that you can go home a PADI dive professional with a sense of accomplishment for a job well done!

The Divemaster qualifications you earn from our program will guide you in becoming a fantastic, service oriented, employable PADI Divemaster. You will be taught by our experienced instructors and work with the best Divemasters in the industry. You will be receiving real world experiences from our professional Divemaster Internships by working in a PADI 5 Star IDC dive resort.

During your Divemaster Internship you will get to dive and learn what becoming a working Divemaster is all about. While training for your Divemaster course you get to enjoy diving in small groups on fast boats and on relaxing larger boats at all of the best dive sites on Cozumel.

Your courses will include free accommodation, flexible instructor training hours, arrival on Cozumel shuttle service, the ability to practice Spanish and many other valuable benefits.

Your adventure to become a PADI Divemaster is not limited to just classroom work and training dives but will also give you the opportunity to enjoy numerous fun dives as well as explore the local flavor, culture and other fun filled adventures Cozumel has to offer.

The next step after your completion of the Divemaster course is to go on and become a PADI Scuba Instructor.

This is done during one of our IDC’s (Instructor Development Course). This course is a 14 day classroom and practical in water experience. During training you will be introduced on how to give academic presentations, confined water presentations and open water presentations.

Your knowledge will also be expanded by further explanations of dive theory in subjects like Dive Physics, Dive Skills & Environment, Dive Physiology (how the body reacts to gases), Recreational Dive Planning, and Dive Equipment. You will also be explained in detail how all of the PADI courses are to be structured and what standards must be met in order to certify a student as a PADI diver.

Following the course there is a 2 day Instructor Exam (IE) conducted by PADI officials from corporate headquarters to ensure that your training meets the standards of the PADI organization. After completion of the IE you will be a PADI OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor). We also offer you the complete program for Instructor level courses after OWSI from Specialty to MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) to Master Instructor.
