Becoming a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer


As our fresh new crop of PADI Open Water Instructors recover from their IE celebrations, we are preparing for the next round of training here at Scuba Futures. Next on the course calendar is the MSDT package, designed to help OWSIs to progress to the next stage….but what is an MSDT?

What are the benefits of becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer?

The main benefit of becoming a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer is that this rating illustrates that you are a dive instructor who is not only certified to teach a wider variety of courses, but also that you are dedicated to continuing education yourself. This is highly attractive to potential employers and students alike and can really boost your opportunities.

Who can become MSDT?

As an MSDT, you will have the experience and training that enables you to teach divers to the highest recreational rating; Master Scuba Diver. If you have earned at least five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications and have certified a minimum of 25 PADI Divers, you can be an MSTD. Not only is it the next step on the PADI Pro ladder, it is also a prerequisite for many TecRec Instructor ratings and IDC Staff Instructor.

How do I become an MSDT?

At Scuba Futures, we can teach you the specialties of your choice so that you can pick the courses that interest you. By specialising in your passions, not only will you get more enjoyment out of your career, but your students will benefit from your enthusiasm.

For each of the specialties that you choose, Scuba Futures ensures that you not only get the in-water practice you need but that you also fully understand the standards, instructor outline and academics. You will benefit from Course Director Neil’s years of experience in teaching these courses, all of the tips and tricks that will help you give your own students the best success in their own training.

If you are ready to move on up, get more employment opportunities and enjoy teaching more than ever, contact us to join the next MSDT course or for individual Specs to get on your way.
