Dive trainees in KK

One of the programs that we are most proud of coming out of Downbelow is our “Work for a Career” program where we give local Sabahans the chance to pursue their passion and dream to work in the scuba diving industry.

We started this program because we know there are many aspiring locals who love the ocean and dream of working outdoor but do not know where or how to start chasing their dream, either because of financial difficulties or being rejected by dive centres because of zero experience.

Our year-long program fills this gap as we accept anyone including those without any diving experience. As long as they have the desire to learn and are willing to put in the hours required they will have no problem to one day to live their diving dream.

Our local trainees are taught every aspect of the diving operational industry and having our own dive centre, it is a perfect opportunity for our trainees to learn what is happening on a daily basis. Throughout their course, they will build on their confidence, character, strength and of course, product knowledge.

The photo above shows one of our trainee busy preparing the tanks for our PADI Discover Scuba Diving guests to use on their dives. The hard work (and exercise!) that they put in today, will benefit them once they are fully-grown dive professionals.

Do you have a passion for diving? Maybe you are the adventurous type who will not be able to sit behind the desk?

Well contact us today to find out how you can enroll into our “Work for a Career” program. Our experienced Go Pro team led by PADI Platinum Course Director Richard Swann will ensure that you will have the best of fun while you’re here. Oh there’s the small thing called learning too – don’t worry, you will forget that you are actually learning!
