Things to Consider

At the moment, we do not offer PADI Dive Master internships to people who are not Maldivian. This is because we believe that offering these internships and apprenticeship programmes to young people here is an investment in the local community. We generally only take one apprentice at a time, so we want to make sure that we offer this opportunity to those that might be from a disadvantaged background, and who might have not been able to fund their own PADI training.
