The dive industry is full of employment opportunities. However, if you are hoping to find a great job rather than just any job, you need to set yourself apart from the average job candidate. Our Dive Industry Specialist (DIS) program will provide you with the comprehensive training and practical experience you need to find the right job in today’s competitive employment market.
We recognize that, while some of you will be seeking employment with a resort dive operator, others may prefer a retail setting or a position on a live-aboard dive boat. So, unlike other training programs which concentrate exclusively on preparing you for working in a resort operation only, our Dive Industry Specialist program provides you with the more diverse training and skills today’s dive industry employers are looking for. On completion of the course you will be eligible to apply for 10 PADI Specialty Instructor ratings.
As a DIS graduate, you will have additional advantages over other candidates using our normal Job Placement Service. We will prepare a dive industry-specific resume for you and will guarantee you that we will give the task of finding you a job our personal attention. We will work closely with our extensive network of employers until we find the right job for you. Later on, if you want to change jobs, we will be happy to offer you our assistance in finding a new position.
