Internships are designed to help newly certified Eco-divers put their training into practice in a real life environment and see how the theory translates into practice.
Our program leaders are some of the most experienced educators on Koh Tao. We are a dedicated group who are actively involved in the Koh Tao Community and anything "Eco" going on. Our team is compiled of an array of experts in Scuba Diving, Marine conservation, Documentary & Filmmaker, Audio-visual Specialist and we all have extensive marine ecosystem training.
If you do not have your scuba certification, then we can easily arrange that for you.
Marine conservation is of increasing importance and educated dive leaders and resource managers will be in greater demand. Eco internships are progressively important for divers looking to gain employment in the diving community and looks impressive on your resume. However, anybody can participate in our internship programs. As an Eco-Intern you’ll be involved in the day to day operations of Eco Koh Tao putting your training into practice in any number of ways. Internships are designed to help newly certified Eco-divers put their training to use in a real life environment and see how the theory translates into practice. Being able to gain the 'hands on' experience is priceless.
There is NO BETTER WAY to enrich and solidify your education than by participating in real world work. Dive with purpose!
You'll be working alongside Divemaster candidates, Instructors as well as Customers on occasions. When we feel confident in your abilities you will have the chance to present/lead some of the ECO activities/dives with our Divemaster candidates as we've created an environmental portion to their Divemaster program which they need to fulfill.
With the ever-increasing number of scuba divers and tourists coming to Koh Tao, education is key for the preservation and conservation of marine environments.
