During visits from Universities, we have a fantastic time learning more about the marine environment we work so closely with and the students’ appreciation of our local knowledge too!
For the past two weeks, a group of science students from the University of Cardiff have been camping at our PADI 5 Star IDC beach house on Gaya Island in Borneo.
In the first few days, the young marine enthusiasts learned to dive on the PADI Open Water Diver course, conducted by our full time and experienced team of PADI Instructors.
Thereafter, the students learned how to record data with various field study dives within the protected Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, a skill they will use in their future career. Our island team of PADI professionals was, of course, on hand to guide, supervise and assist with their vast knowledge of the local dive sites & marine life to be found in the area.
Diving for scientific purposes may require a minimum qualification as PADI Divemaster, and fortunately our professional internship programs include for our internship candidates to be involved in any conservation efforts we undertake!
Anyone who is interested in the marine environment can get more information on what else our internship programs entail when they contact our Head Office staff at KK Times Square. A suitable itinerary can be arranged to suit the individuals’ time availability, budget and needs to live the diving dream!
