job placement

It is paramount that if you are looking for a career in diving, you should start this process before you start your training! We believe in listening to your requests and ideas as well as managing your expectations. If you are considering working abroad there is quite a bit of paperwork and preparation you need to complete that includes work permits, background check, etc. before you start, and even finish your training. We can help you navigate thru this process. Don’t be misled by offers of employment when you sign up for your training…they will have your money by then, and we do not want you to have “buyer’s remorse”, as this is a great profession to be in and we want you to have a positive experience from day one!

Our goal is to connect qualified, skilled dive professionals with prospective employers. Although we are not allowed to guarantee employment by law, we feel confident that with the high quality of instruction and post graduate classes offered at Sea Experience, you will be on sound footing for your future career. Your job placement interview starts in earnest on day one of training and any Sea Experience student seeking employment will have priority in job placement due to their experience and qualifications received.

Sea Experience offers job placement services exclusively for its alumni. We recommend only qualified Sea Experience Alumnus because we can vouch for the thorough, professional training they have received. As a matter of fact, we ourselves, only employ Instructors who have taken our professional PADI courses.

Through our job placement database, we fit the wants and needs of the employee to the needs of the employer. Making a match that a fit for everyone! A “win, win” situation. As with most professions, employers are looking for the most qualified applicants to fill their staffing needs. Taking training beyond the Open Water Scuba Instructor course, MSDT Prep and especially the PHASE 4 program puts you steps ahead of the rest! In fact, you will have over 20 additional instructor qualifications when you finish Phase 4. Now you see why our graduates are some of the most demanded employees in the industry.


Our priority is to help you achieve your goals.


Job Placement Assistance

Sea Experience helps with job placement once you have completed our Instructor Development Course. Can we guarantee you a job after the completion of your training? The answer is no. No school can guarantee you employment. They are not allowed to by law of the State of Florida Board of Education. Please be incredibly careful of anyone who says they can. Sea Experience has a large network of former students who now are owners and or managers of dive stores and resorts. We have extraordinarily strong relationships in place with our alumni and when they have vacant positions to fill, they know they can turn to Sea Experience to meet their employment needs. Sea Experience also makes use of the PADI website bulletin board which we have found to be quite productive. Also, because dive resumes’ need to be specific and specialized and with that end in mind, we offer our graduates our expert assistance to make sure that your resume will be noticed and seriously considered by any potential employer. Our pledge to you is that if you come here to learn, expand your knowledge and be open to placement areas we will do our best to help you fulfill your job and career expectations.

    Industry Quotes about our students

    ‘For over 30 years I have hired PADI Instructors from Colin and Bill at Sea Experience. I know I will get a qualified well trained dive instructor who will be ready to start on day one.”

    Spencer Slate, Capt. Slates SCUBA Adventures, Tavernier, FL.

    “As hiring manager for Explorer Ventures Liveaboards, I scan many sources when looking for potential well-rounded candidates. There are some of those sources that tend to be more reliable and consistent in providing great candidates that are well trained and have great work ethic. Sea Experience has been one of those sources that we trust to produce excellent instructors”.

    Nelson Riollano, Operations Manager, Explorer Ventures Liveaboard Diving Fleet

    Why Sea Experience for your Professional Instructor Development?

    Having worked within many tropical dive resorts over the years, the most critical aspect to a new instructor hire, regardless of the location, is competence in not only teaching, but one’s ability to work on boats. A new instructor that has had ‘extra experience’ like compressor maintenance, basic boat handling & ropes, minor gear maintenance or how to guide divers on a ‘fun’ dive not just training – all contribute to the hiring process. Sea Experience really says it all in the name. New instructors will gain that critical ‘experience’ needed to be successful in the resort environment. Add the new program Dr. Brylske has brought to the training process with Eco Pro training, graduates of Sea Experience are some of the best trained instructors in the world.

    William Cline
    Pro Dive Graduate and Former Marketing Manager

    I have had the best experience working with the staff at Sea Experience and would recommend them to anyone. We primarily use their services as a source for qualified dive professionals for our dive operation here on Maui. Colin is extremely experienced and knows exactly what I am looking for in a potential employee. The people Colin has recommended for us in the past have worked out extremely well. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with them in the future.
