Season last day 14 October 2022
The internship program is directed at those pursuing a career in coral reef conservation or management. The internship consists of the 4 Week program, plus 4-8 weeks of working as an assistant instructor for the program, diving minimum 5 days / week and pursuing projects you are most interested in while helping new students in the course.
To extend the internship price is THB 16,000 per each additional 4 week period (must have prior approval, max. 6 months)
Scuba diving costs (excluding scuba diving courses to reach advance level), Lecture/Presentation on theory, 4 Conservation Diver certifications, Course materials, the Ecological Monitoring Program Manual and Slate, company insurance (covers only minor accidents during diving or on the boat), equipment for scuba diving (compass, dive computer, SMB based on availability)
Drinking water available for refill at dive school and boat. The dive boat also have coffee, tea, cookies and light fruit.
Food, accommodation, personal travel insurance including scuba diving up to 30 meters, travel to, from and on Koh Tao
To begin the NHRCP courses you must be certified by SSI, PADI or equivalent as an Advanced Level Diver minimum. This means that non-divers coming to do the program must first complete the Open Water course (3 Days, 11,000 THB) and the Advanced Course (2 Days, 10,000 THB). Both of which can be done with the New Heaven Dive School. Thus, a non-diver coming for 2 weeks would spend the first week learning to dive, and the second week learning the conservation. The course prices above would then be changed to reflect this, so please write to us with your specific situation so we can quote you the correct price.
Mask and Fins (strongly encouraged)
