Are you a certified Divemaster? ​

 

Caymanian divemasters are eligible for a paid internship, while they work their way to becoming a certified Dive Instructor. 

Scuba training agencies require that you are a certified diver for at least 6 months, and have 100 logged dives. If you need logged dives, time, or in-water experience, this is the place to get it, while getting paid. If you need help with the academics, Divetech offers on the job tutoring. 

Divetech offers financial assistance, free equipment rental, or any other assistance we can provide to get you through your instructor class. In exchange for our unwavering support, Divetech does ask for a commitment in time from the Divemaster Interns.
