Ongoing real world repair of scuba regulators, high pressure breathing air compressors, Visual/Hydrostatic/NDT inspection of scuba cylinders and storage banks, together with the provision of air, nitrox and trimix blends for divers by our in-house staff, has provided a background to the 500 technicians who have completed training here at our facilities over the last 15 years. Thus it was inevitable that we would need to satisfy technician trainee requests to stay longer and would need to prepare an outline for internship training.

*All of the Dive Industry Technician Courses featured on this page are run at Easytek Co. Ltd., a diver’s life support equipment service & repair company based in Pattaya, Thailand.


These are valuable skills, especially working in dive centers in remote areas or on diving liveaboards equipment and compressor skills are essential to increase your employability. The DITC internship course was put together at the request of visiting technician trainees who wanted more extensive experience and practice in a real world environment than could be achieved during our usual 1-2 week training programs and is structured to deal with the varied back grounds and needs of Dive Technician trainees who intend to work in the Commercial Diving, Military Diving and Scuba diving industries.

The internship training course packages puts the dive technician through not only academic and workshop training courses but also permits the technician to gain experience working with and setting up the background logistics, parts ordering, stocking and technical literature systems that are essential in supporting the dive technician activity, and gain an insight into the business aspects of running a repair workshop. The internship candidate will also assist us under direct supervision in the repair of any client’s equipment and accompany us on any visits to service or repair client’s equipment on site – in such a way, the internship student is given the opportunity to gain as broad a practical experience as possible.

Additionally, many students have requested that we provide a common tool set used for servicing all scuba & bailout regulator types together with optional manufacturer specific custom tool packages necessary to support the Dive Technicians work in a format that can be easily carried within standard airline weight limits. The student can chose which manufacturer custom tool package(s) he/she wants.
