There is no better way to enrich and solidify your education than participating in ‘real world’ work and internship experiences. At New Heaven, we are proud to offer students the unique experience of not only getting certified and working on marine and island conservation and management projects, but also the experience of assisting the instructors with students during the internship program.

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 8 weeks of working as an assistant instructor for the program, diving everyday and pursuing whichever projects you are most interested in while helping new students in the course.
2019 Cost: 60,000 THB for the first 12 weeks, then 16,000 THB per each additional 4 week period (must have prior approval, max. 6 months)
To begin the NHRCP courses you must be certified by PADI or SSI as an Advanced Level Diver. 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 (2-3 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.
