One of our dive instructors Tharmizi a.k.a. Timmy can rest easy now that he has received his official PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certificate and card from PADI.
Timmy is one of the many successful Downbelow trainees who achieved their dream through Downbelow’s “Work for a Career” program. The program accepts local Sabahans who harbour the dream of working as PADI dive instructors full time.
Timmy signed up with Downbelow a more than 1 year ago, without any experience in teaching dive courses and or even scuba diving experience!
The year-long internship is designed to build upon the trainees’ knowledge, experience, scuba diving and problem-solving skills at an acceptable pace through self-learning, workshops, participation and observation of our actual professional dive instructors at our PADI 5-Star IDC Dive Centre, the result being a fully qualified PADI Divemaster. After working as a Divemaster he then enrolled on the PADI IDC Program.
It greatly benefited Timmy and look at him now, fully qualified to teach PADI courses from Discover Scuba Divers to PADI Divemasters!
You too can join the program if you want to chase your dream by calling Downbelow today. Our staff will help you chart your way to success!
