We will simplify this as much as possible for you and will help you make the best choice. Rather than wading through all the various options, you can email us.

After certification as a Dive Instructor...
After becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you will be able to conduct the entire range of PADI programs from Discover Scuba Diving up to Divemaster. You will want to continue your professional training by completing courses that allow you to teach beyond the core courses. For example, the popular Digital Underwater Photographer or Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox). Specialty instructor ratings complement your Open Water Scuba Instructor rating and add to your professional portfolio.
After the IE we offer a one day Employment Workshop on request. This will cover the nature of the dive industry, various locations, what employers are looking for and how to get a diving job. We will teach you how to write a resume, find a job and work in the diving industry. This will focus on YOUR needs and wishes, and YOUR plans for your future in diving. With the wealth of experience of our instructors we can let you know all the tricks and pitfalls we have learned over the years. We have a lot of experience in hiring instructors and you will have the chance to listen to our valuable insights. We will also help you write your first diving resume/CV, show you how to look for diving work online, and advise on how to get a job in any location you want. We can even apply for jobs with you online if you are ready.
In the last year our interns have easily found jobs in such exotic locations as the Red Sea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico and the Med.
After you leave Malapascua we will always be only an email away from any more questions you may have or advice you may need on finding a job, or in fact on anything else.
