MSDT - MASTER SCUBA DIVER TRAINER Take your instructing to the next level

What is a MSDT? I want to be one…

A Master Scuba Diver Trainer is the ultimate recreational instructor rating. You qualify in 5 distinct speciality certifications that you can then teach.

The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart as a Dive Instructor who takes continuing education seriously and is committed to teaching a variety of courses. (Potential employers like this.) Being an MSDT signifies that you've got the experience and certifications to offer all the training a diver needs to become a Master Scuba Diver.

You will have to complete some additional sessions with one of our Course Directors after you have completed your IE. Additionally, you will need 25 Certifications (these can be done at any time). For some of the certifications you will also need to do some additional dives and work with one of our specialist instructors.

For example,

  • if you want to become certified to teach the Full Face Mask, you will need to complete the specialist course with a Full Face Mask trainer.
  • If you want to become a Naturalist, you may need to do some dives with one of our Marine Biologists
  • Or we have specialist Photography Instructors that can work with you regardless on your level of experience in this area.

You can package your MSDT skills package into your IDT for $1200 including the Peak Bouyancy speciality, EANx (Nitrox) speciality and three others of your choice.
