New training opportunities in Aruba

news new opportunities

Everything is Possible has some new training opportunities available in Aruba either in sports or mechanics. These 6 months projects will start on 1st November 2018.

These projects are unique experiences during which you will be able to develop personal and professional skills.

Sport training project at Palm Island:

Palm Island VET project in Aruba
Palm Island is Aruba’s All Inclusive Resort Island. Receiving tourists every day of the year, the coral reef just off De Palm Island is one of Aruba’s most spectacular snorkel sites. There’s no easier way to catch a glimpse of the spectacular marine life of the Caribbean, and in particular, the stunning blue parrotfish that are endemic to Aruba. The Island offers other sports activities such as zip line, air jumpers and banana boat rides and trainees will have opportunities to work in all these activity fields as well as receiving customers on the boat crossing between the mainland and the island. There are children’s sport activities, a waterpark and swimming/snorkelling area all of which trainees will work alongside staff to deliver to the general public.

Trainees will be given lifeguarding training and also training in the other fields of work. They will also be trained in CPR and emergency first aid.

→ We are looking for trainees who have studied sport or outdoor education and completed their studies in the last three months… So don’t leave it too late! Trainees need to be 18+, competent swimmers, have a driving license, and be sociable and outgoing.

 

Mechanic training project at Atlantis:

Atlantis VET project in Aruba
Atlantis and Seaworld Explorer are two submarines/semi underwater vessels In 1986, Atlantis I began the world’s first tourist submarine operation in Grand Cayman. Atlantis started the School Children’s Program; classroom work is followed by a dive, which provides children with real exposure to the ocean environment, and an awareness of its fragile nature. Subsequently 48 passenger submarines were launched across the Caribbean including, Aruba.  Atlantis built and deployed a series of reef structures aimed at attracting and protecting numerous different marine life into an area that was previously scoured by a hurricane many years ago, removing the protective coral cover for marine life. Trainees working on this project will be based in the DePalm maintenance department working in the field of engineering and mechanics and will have the opportunity to work on both DePalm’s sea vessels and also their main site jeeps and tour vehicles. Shifts will mainly be in the evening and night approximately 18.00 – 24.00 when the vehicles are out of action and much of the work will be delivered underwater.

→ We are looking for trainees who have studied sport or outdoor education and completed their studies in the last three months… So don’t leave it too late! Trainees need to be 18+, competent swimmers, experienced in diving or ready to undertake a diving course in Aruba, hold a valid driving license, and be confident and ready to try new things.
