New IDC Interns Meredith and Jess with resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann in the middle

Resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann took great delight this weekend in welcoming our latest Pro scuba diving interns and IDC candidates, Meredith and Jess.

They immediately jumped into their PADI Divemaster courses and, under Richard’s guidance, made great strides towards climbing the first rung on the Professional Scuba Diving ladder.

Sunday saw them conduct the Scuba Review program, which formed part of their PADI Divemaster course, along with a stamina test. Pro scuba divers have to show that they are in good shape, you know?

Soon they will be up-to-speed and ready for the September Instructor Development Course, which starts on 31 August, runs through until 11 September and finishes with the PADI Instructor Examination in Kota Kinabalu on 12 and 13 September.

If you too want to take the leap and become a professional scuba diver, consider the next IDC course at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island in Kota Kinabalu, taking place in November.

Also consider a pro internship, the way to go for those serious about training for a professional diving career. Quality education comes with hands-on, real-world experience, which sets you apart in the job market when applying for that dream job.

Get in touch with us and lets talk about how you can Go Pro with Downbelow.
