PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer
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 – the ultimate recreational diver rating.
All PADI Instructors who have certified at least 25 PADI Divers and have earned at least five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications can be Master Scuba Diver Trainers. This rating is the next step up the professional ladder and is a prerequisite for IDC Staff Instructor as well as for many TecRec Instructor ratings.
You’re a new instructor? Just finished the IE or not quite there yet? No problem. Scuba Leeds have two in house PADI Course Directors who are on hand to help you complete your PADI Specialty Instructor Training and with the support of the Scuba Leeds team we will help you gain the certifications you require to achieve the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer certification through our MSDT Prep Course.
Why should I do this course?
As a PADI MSDT, you demonstrate to a dive employer that you have good experience in teaching diving and also can teach a range of specialty diver courses. This makes a dive center or resort more likely to offer you a position.
As a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, you:
• Teach the specialties you love to teach
• Enjoy watching your student divers excel as you lead them from PADI Open Water Diver to PADI Master Scuba Diver
• Increase your income with multiple level training
• Meet one of the requirements to qualify as a PADI Master Instructor
What scuba gear will I use?
You will need to equip yourself with all the basic scuba gear as well as some scuba accessories. It is highly recommended and expected that, as a diver of this level, you own your own scuba equipment.
