PAID v FREE Internship
Why pay for an education when you can get it for free?
It’s the age old saying ” You really do get what you pay for”
Free may seem like the cheaper option but having to work 6 months without a wage is actually a very expensive way of obtaining your Divemaster Qualification.
The work is often demeaning and back breaking.
14 hour days without a day off is sadly considered normal.
The training is usually very poor quality and only given when the centre is quiet but in all fairness a respectable dive centre should never be quiet.
Most centres that offer so called “free” internships tend to be illegal and its very common to hear horror stories of interns working all summer to leave with nothing more than a basic Open Water Qualification that was never processed. When investigated by PADI it turns out the centres were not legal!
A lot of the time you are not only expected to sweep, mop, clean toilets and sit behind a computer screen all day ( probably the very thing you’re trying to get away from) but you are almost always expected to sell and if you don’t meet your set sales targets you will be asked to leave so someone else can take your bed.
Again any reputable dive centre would have its own staff in place to look after bookings, sales, social media etc. Doing all this is not part of a Divemaster’s role or training.
Again you really do get what you pay for.
By paying for your training you get a dedicated instructional team who will give you a quality education.
Depending upon your previous experience, it takes between one to two months to become a Divemaster, then for the rest of your duration you can go off and get a paid job as a professional Divemaster, not only getting a wage but gaining REAL experience working in the industry.
This is by far the cheaper way to obtain your Divemaster qualification.
You are treated with respect and all that is required is that you focus on your diving and have FUN!!!
