INTERNSHIP

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.

We have helped many students complete training for positions with conservation groups elsewhere in the world. Because of our small program size you will get one-on-one assistance and get to participate in a wide range of activities in a leadership position. Internships process and programs vary per student, please contact the conservation team directly for more information about these opportunities.

**NOTE: OUR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM HAS BECOME MORE COMPETITIVE IN RECENT YEARS, PLEASE BOOK EARLY. IN CASE THE MONTHS YOU WANT ARE ALREADY FULL, THOSE WISHING TO STAY LONGER ARE ADVISED TO ENROLL IN THE 4 WEEK PROGRAM, AND THEN STAY ON FOR ADDITIONAL TIME AS VOLUNTEERS AT 24,000 THB PER MONTH (subject to availability).**

Description:

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)

INCLUDES:

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.

EXCLUDES:

Food, accommodation, personal travel insurance including scuba diving up to 30 meters, travel to, from and on Koh Tao

Course Requirements:

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.

Also note that participants must be able to carry a gear bag on and off the boat, ascend stairs, and work outside and should be of physical condition to do so.
Diving is about expanding your limits; increasing your potential. And we should take that same attitude with us after we leave the water. By encouraging stewardship and responsible business practices we believe dive schools will soon be rated not by how many certifications they pump out, but by their social and environmental impact.
