Specialty Instructor & MSDT
As a PADI Instructor you will definitely want to teach PADI Specialty Courses such Nitrox, Deep & Wreck etc. In order to do this you must get the relevant PADI Specialty Instructor rating under your belt. Once you have at least 5 PADI Specialty Instructor ratings and have amassed 25 certifications at any level you can apply for your Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating.
What's the best way to do this?
As soon as you have completed the IDC you are strongly advised to continue immediately and take part in our MSDT prep program. This is a 2/3 day program that will take you through 5 popular PADI Specialty Instructor Ratings. Once PADI has verified your Specialty Instructor application you can start teaching your new courses immediately. This instantly gives you access to new students.
