The Fun Part

The Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart from other dive instructors by showing your commitment to continuing your dive training and being prepared to help others continue their training as well. You also get to teach specialty diver courses – which opens the door to lots of fun while working.

What You Learn

Abyss Scuba Diving runs PADI Specialty Instructor Training and the Master Scuba Diver Trainer Prep Course in conjunction with every iDC. The program is held between the IDC and IE, giving IE candidates an opportunity for additional practice prior to their IE.

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 speciality diver courses. This makes a dive centre or resorts more likely to offer you a position.
