Professional SCUBA Diving Intern Jan just become a fully qualified PADI Divemaster here in Borneo with Downbelow. We’re very proud!
A month ago Jan came to our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre all the way from Norway. He was a qualified CMAS Advanced Open Water Diver, but was adamant about joining our PADI Go Pro dive internship to become a PADI dive professional.
Over the course of the month he was on the island daily – we do, after all, dive every day.
Jan was soon knee deep in not just acquiring the knowledge and skills required to be a PADI Divemaster, but also gaining a keen insight into the ins and outs of the daily operations of a busy dive centre.
There were several large groups to take care of, plenty of Discover SCUBA Divers to watch over, and even an illegal net removal or two, all which Jan took in his stride.
We bid Jan a fond farewell, but hope to see him back soon when Jan the Divemaster wants to become Jan the Dive Instructor.
