SSI Dive Guide and Divemaster Internships @ Infinity Divers: the “REAL WORLD” experience leaders.
Minimum – 3 weeks for the SSI Dive Guide Internship and 1 month (4 weeks) for the SSI Divemaster Internship.
To enter the internship as an Open Water Diver or non diver an 8 week “zero to hero” internship is recommended. This will enable you to attain the professional rating of a SSI Divemaster or Assistant Instructor.
If you enter the program as an Advanced Open Water Diver, 6 weeks are recommended to complete your SSI Divemaster internship.
For Certified Rescue divers, 3 weeks is enough time to reach your goal as Dive Guide and 4/6 weeks as Divemaster. Many people are able to finish the course work sooner however, rushing through the course and not gaining work experience and accumulating as many dives as possible takes away the fun (the most important part of the internship).
Your accommodation is not included in the internship. You will have different choices of accommodation, from a basic hostal or BB to a luxurious 5 stars Resort.
