PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT)
Take the next step on the professional ladder. After the IDC you are ready to teach, but already during your Instructor exam, the examiner will tell you to keep going. Teaching diving is a passion so the next step for many Instructors is to increase their knowledge and expand the range of dive programs that they can teach. Therefore, the Master Scuba Diver Trainer is the logical step up that ladder. The MSDT training program gives you the training and practical experience in your favorite dive activities, whether it is the deep dive or the underwater photography what you love so much. You pick 5 PADI specialties and become the expert. By gaining this rating you make yourself more employable in the eyes of dive center owners as you can offer far more teaching options to their divers.
To gain the MSDT rating you will need to be a Specialty Instructor in a minimum of 5 PADI specialties. As our IDC program is already very elaborate you receive 2 specialties as a bonus. So you are almost half way there. We can set up a personal program for your specialties based on your choices. Conducting 5 PADI Specialties will take about 4 – 5 days depending on your course choices.
Here at Rich Coast Diving, we offer special packages with 5 specialties to choose from. If you sign up for the IDC and the MSDT prep we offer the IDCS for FREE.
Once you are certified in 5 specialties you can start teaching and after reaching 25 certifications (in any level) you can apply for the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating.
