Diving Instructor Courses on Koh Tao

Dive Job Placement Service

Working as a PADI Divemaster or Dive Instructor is a Job that most people dream of. And there are a lot of people looking for dive jobs on Koh Tao, Thailand.

So, the big question is, after completing the Divemaster or Instructor Development Course (IDC) on Koh Tao, is it easy to find a job? The answer is: Yes and No. It all depends on where you want to work and how you go about searching the different job opportunities that are available.

Best Diving Job Thailand

Many new PADI Divemaster and Dive Instructors struggle to find work after completion of their Divemaster and PADI IDC, so we decided at Sairee Cottage Diving to create a unique Dive Job Placement Service that offers our Divemaster and IDC candidates a high chance of getting their perfect diving job either here or in other places in the world.

Why is it not always easy to find a dive-related job?

The main reason why some people struggle to find a Job as a Divemaster or Dive Instructor is that they have no help or training in finding employment in the dive industry. We at Sairee Cottage Diving believe that it is not only our goal to make great PADI Divemasters and PADI Instructors but also our responsibility to help our students find that fantastic dive job they are looking for. There are many dive jobs out there; however, it’s all about knowing where to look for them and how to go about it.

What is the Diving Job Placement program at Sairee Cottage Diving?

During the Divemaster and IDC courses we start by finding out what you want to do with your dive career and then use our large network in the dive industry to find work for you or connect you with the right employee. Everyone is different and that is why it is so important to find the right Dive Shop for each individual.

During the Sairee Cottage Diving Instructor Development Course you will get extensive lectures and training about the Business and Marketing of Diving and learn how to market yourself in a modern dive industry, working with all the new technologies like the PADI “Touch” products, diving apps, website building advice, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and Social Network Marketing.

On top of this all we will discuss the many different dive jobs that you can do in the Dive Industry besides (or alongside) working as a Divemaster or Instructor. You can also work in dive equipment retails shops, manage dive centres, work for PADI, work in Freediving, become a dive equipment technician and there are many other possibilities. Guest Speakers will also be invited to explain different choices in your dive career.

Is it possible to work at Sairee Cottage Diving on Koh Tao after completing my PADI Divemaster and Instructor Development Course?

This is possible. Sairee Cottage Diving is growing all the time, however, it does depend on how busy the dive shop is and any job vacancies at the time of certification. In order to maintain the very high quality of Sairee Cottage Diving, we need to make sure that our potential Divemaster and Dive Instructor employees know everything about the Dive School and that they will follow the highest standards in their work. For this we only hire Instructors that have the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) rating and have completed a 6 week Dive Instructor Internship with us.
