Taking a PADI Internship with us really does mean that you’ll be spending on average a day a week underwater whilst learning and becoming a PADI Professional!
For 3 months you’ll be learning every aspect of the Dive Industry from the acknowledged PADI Professionals in Vietnam. The Rainbow Academy, a subsidiary of Rainbow Divers- Vietnam, was established in 2004 in response to the high demand from individuals (both divers & non-divers) throughout the world who recognised the need for a focused approach to assist them with a change from their existing life-style to that of a professional dive educator.
So, whether you are looking for a short ‘life break’, an opportunity to travel the world with a professional qualification, or a permanent position in the dive industry, The Rainbow Academy can help.
