2023 PADI Divemaster Internship for Indonesian Citizens Programme
2023 11 Month PADI Divemaster Internship for Indonesian Citizens
Eleven years ago, AquaMarine introduced the “AMD-B PADI Divemaster Internship for Indonesian Citizens” Programme; a major initiative to re-invest into Bali’s dive community.
The Internship provides the highest level of all-round training so that each Intern can confidently pursue a career in the dive industry.
Although every member of AMD-B’s Dive Team is involved with PADI (OW to DM) and Dive Guide Training, Aan, one of AMD-B’s longest-serving PADI OWSIs, provides one-on-one direct mentoring for our interns.
For 2023, to ensure sufficient relevant experience, AMD-B will take a maximum of four interns.
Closing date for applications 31 October 2022.
To apply, please send (in English):
– Application letter with CV
– Essay 1: “Why you want to become a PADI Divemaster, and how it would change your life” (max 250 words)
– Essay 2: “A life-changing event or activity you have experienced” (max 250 words)
Incomplete applications, or applications sent outside the application period, will not be considered.

They will join AMD-B’s dive staff team to build upon and practise their skills and knowledge.
End of Programme
At the end of the eleven month contract period:
- If they would like to stay with AMD-B and we have a vacancy for a Junior Dive Guide, then it’s a match made in heaven.
- Otherwise they will be free to leave with newly acquired knowledge, experience and certifications.
