After this you will move on to the Skills Development part of your course. This involves learning how to map a dive site as well as developing your watermanship skills, your boat skills and your skills in giving boat and dive briefings.

When your mentor feels that you are ready, then your Internship will begin! ( if you are short on time, you will asked to complete a practical assessment instead) This will involve assisting the Instructors on a selection of Open Water, Advanced and Rescue courses as well as certain amount of confined water sessions.
