If you have never dived before and want to become a PADI Instructor then this unique Scuba Diving Internship takes you from a Non-Diver to a PADI Professional in just 7 month (PADI Standards require to have been a certified diver for at last 6 month prior to starting your IDC = Instructor Development Course).

At Haad Yao Divers we have been training PADI Professionals since 1997 and our highly qualified and experienced dive staff will help you get the most out of your dive training. We take the training very seriously but never forget the fun part. Koh Phan-gan is one of the most beautiful islands in the Gulf of Thailand with the most famous dive sites like Sail Rock and Angthong Marine Park closest to Koh Phangan. It’s a great place to start your professional diving career.

    I’m interested in your zero-to-hero program to become an OWSI. Have 30+ logged dives as OWD. Please let me know how much will it cost for me on terms as mentioned for zero beginners, how long time will it take and when is it possible to start (schedule)?

    Best regards,
    Vitaly Kuznetsov.
