Andark Dive Master Scholarship
If you want to become a diving professional, next summer could be one to remember. Two lucky individuals will be selected to spend their summer at Andark Diving and Watersports’ world-class diving facilities, learning the ropes and fast-tracking their skills in the diving industry, while becoming a PADI Divemaster at no cost to them. Andark uses an internship approach to give the scholars the best experience of the dive industry while earning their PADI Divemaster certification.
Sponsored by Suunto in previous years, the Scholars have had access to all of their required materials and equipment free of charge, with high quality diver training provided by Andark. Suunto will once again be providing state of the art dive computers for the Scholars for the duration of the course, which will be theirs to keep upon successful completion!
The programme runs from mid-June to mid-September. You will be based at Andark’s diver training centre at Lower Swanwick, mid-way between Southampton and Portsmouth. You will also be diving at other locations in the region. You will gain your first professional diving certification working alongside Andark’s team of PADI Instructors in the indoor pool and Europe’s first purpose-built diver training lake, while also learning how a dive centre runs behind the scenes, and helping both novice and experienced divers to learn new skills, as you would as a qualified PADI Divemaster.
