Living The Dream After Instructor Graduation

Finding work after becoming a Scuba Diving Instructor can sometimes be a daunting task, you are competing against people with much more experience who have been working in the industry longer. The best thing about doing your Instructor Course in Phuket is that there is almost always work for new instructors and Aussie Divers will help you to get it. We have awesome and varied post graduation programs, ranging from 'Ride Alongs' with our elite instructors to instructor internships where experience & responsibility can be had in real world environments with real customers, getting you the qualifications & certifications you need to be attractive to employers.

The absolute best way to ensure employability after you graduate to a fully fledged (OWSI) Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor is to continue your training with PADI, especially when it comes to the PADI instructor specialties we teach here at Aussie Divers. Once you have five Instructor specialties under your belt you will become an M.S.D.T or Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which looks much better on your diving resume'. Specialties include being able to teach the PADI Deep Diver (40m), Enriched Air Nitrox, PADI Wreck Diver, Sidemount Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer courses, plus many many more!

The support I got through the IDC not only from Darren and Ash but from the whole team was unbelie [...]

We have been talking for a long time about re-designing our web presence to match the level of enthusiasm we have for all things related to scuba diving in Phuket, Thailand. We wanted to build a web site that could not just inform people about what we do, but one that would create a medium by which we could truly communicate with our current and future customers.
