My name is Melissa and i am looking at doing a Scuba Diving Instructor Internship some where in Thailand possibly..Pattya (not to sure yet - as i have heard there are better places then this to become a Scuba Instructor).
Has anyone done or heard any thing about the courses over their?
Are they all fairly legite?
Where are the best places to go?
What should i look out for?
Are the safe for a Female Solo traveler to do?
I am looking at doing this in mid May 2007, is there anyone else who is thinking of doing this around the same time?
Thanks for any information anyone can give me on this.

I may be of no help at all as I dont know anything about diving in Thailand.
HOwever, if you happen to go to (or you meant that you were unsure about going to Thailand and considering other places) Singapore, I know of a great place with great people. They take you to Islands in Malaysia which are more beautiful than any other one I've been to Thailand.
I was studying in Singapore for six weeks (i'm from Australia) and a group of us went. It was very very cheap and very very safe.
PM me if you happen to want to know more about Singapore!
I saw your January blog post on Travellerspoint and wanted to introduce us. We are Aquanauts Dive Centre in Pattaya Beach Thailand and we operate the Aquanauts Diving Instructor Training Internship program.
I's been 2 months since your post, so I don't know if you've found an internship program yet. If you wouldn't mind, drop me a reply and let me know if you have. If not, I'd love to talk to you about your questions regarding professional dive training.
In the interim, you can take a look at our site at www.divinginstructortraining.com for full details on our program.
