DIVEMASTER INTERNSHIP IN BUNAKEN – REPORT 1 FROM TRINE

Trine Divemaster TraineeI am now half way into my six-week internship as DM in Bunaken and Lembeh. It has has been three weeks of lots of work, lots of learning-experiences and lots of diving. Well, last week has been out of the water. I have got something as trivial as a common cold, but equalising has been impossible! Oh well, done my theory, my exam’s and some workshops. But I really want to get wet again! I am going to Lembeh now from Bunaken for one week. Strange how much home a dive center will become in a short time. Almost like leaving home to leave Bunaken now. But so looking forward to Lembeh.

DIVEMASTER INTERNSHIP IN LEMBONGAN – REPORT 2 FROM CHRISTIAN

Christian Divemaster TraineeAfter two trips to Sanur to the highly recommended female ear doctor I finally recovered from my infection. So back in the water at last. Lucky me was able to assist in an Advanced Open Water course. It was much better to assist in a real course than in a course with fake students. Also I was very lucky that we had a Discover Scuba Diving student and it was very interesting to see him take in all the new impressions and help him explore the underwater world.

My takeaways from this week are primarily the challenges associated with managing groups of people. In the dive master program it is included to organization a skin diving / snorkeling tours and scuba review sessions. There is simply a lot to consider managing people on the surface and under water, and I have a lot to learn and improve there.
