To begin with you will sit an Orientation. This is conducted by one of our two dedicated ‘Divemaster in Training co-ordinators’. Our DMT Co-ordinators will be responsible for supervising your entire course and overseeing your schedule from Day 1.

As well as scheduling they personally conduct the following modules:

Water Assessments , Underwater Mapping Project

DIVEMASTER Search & Recovery Workshop

Early during your DM course you will be assigned a ‘mentor’ from our Instructional team. They will personally oversee your progress and ensure your course is progressing as you wish (and as we wish too!).

You will spend some of the course ‘assisting student divers in training’ and although you will have the opportunity to assist a variety of our Instructors, and when possible, assist your mentor.

We will schedule your training in sequence, building up your diving skills, confidence and experience step by step whilst you enjoy Koh Tao’s fantastic dive sites and marine life.

We have over 25 dive sites close to the island ranging from shallow coral reefs, giant boulders, small caves and swim-throughs to deeper outer laying pinnacles. There are also two wreck dive sites within a 25-minute trip.

As your Divemaster internship progresses, you’ll gradually assume more responsibility, becoming more and more part our team.

You’ll be assisting with:

Boat & dive centre logistics

Assiststing Scuba Reviews

Delivering briefings to divers

Assisting our Instructors with student diver training

Guiding certified divers on underwater tours

Assisting our Divemasters with certified divers
