Open Water to Instructor Koh Tao Course Schedule –

The open water course will last for 4 days, the advanced course will take 2 days and the stress & rescue another 4 days. You will then need to log 40 dives before you start the Divemaster internship – don’t worry we include these dives in the price. Once these 40 dives are logged you can then start the Divemaster internship which will take between 1-2 months to complete.

Once you have completed the Divemaster you can stay and dive and get as much experience as possible before starting the Instructor Training Course which then takes around 2 weeks to complete.

We start instructor training courses every month. See a full schedule for 2019 here.
