The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) Preparation Course minimum 4 days
This PADI program prepares PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors (OWSI) for the rating of PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT). This is a PADI Instructor who can teach at least 5 PADI Specialty Diver Courses and thus teach an entire PADI Master Scuba Diver program and be able to offer more to the Dive Centre and it’s customers.
This is an important rating to achieve as early as possible after you become a PADI OWSI which is why we have included it in our Scuba Diving Internship and Career Development packages. The Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart from other Scuba Dive instructors by showing you are your future employer several things:
- You take your role as PADI Instructor seriously
- You are motivated and enjoy developing your own knowledge and skills
- You are able to offer the Dive Centre or Dive Resort more than an OWSI
- You are someone who enjoys teaching and has experience in teaching PADI scuba diving courses
The courses are scheduled monthly throughout the year and can be conducted at more or less anytime, but are scheduled at the end of every IDC program after the IE.
The MSDT generally starts with a day or two of classroom where we review the PADI Specialty Instructor Outlines from the PADI Specialty Instructor Manual (which is now included in your IDC pack.) You will watch some DVDs, look at the various pieces of specialty equipment. This is usually followed by 2 days of scuba diving (6 dives) out on the boat to various Phuket Dive Sites like: King Cruiser shipwreck, Shark Point, Ko Dok Mai, Anemone Reef or Racha Noi and Racha Yai.
Chris LOVES teaching these courses as he gets to dive on his Poseidon Se7en Rebreather while teaching these courses, so like it or not, you will get to learn quite a bit about the PADI Recreational Rebreather CCR course and the Poseidon Rebreather. Chris is also required to give you a Rebreather Orientation prior to you diving with him as you will be diving on Open Circuit (OC). Unless you are also trained to dive on the Poseidon MKVI or Se7en Rebreather in which case you can dive on your unit too and Chris will be unbelievably happy!
To qualify as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, you must:
- Be a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor
- Have five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications
- Have certified at least 25 PADI Divers
