PADI MSDT Course Schedule

5 PADI Specialties and optional internship

We offer extreme flexibility on how to reach your goal of becoming a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. You can choose 5 PADI Specialties and get trained by our PADI Course Director. Depending on which Specialties you are aiming to receive the Instructor rating for, this will take between 4 and 6 days. The perfect combination for newly certified PADI Instructors is our MSDT & Internship program. During your internship you will gain invaluable experience working closely with our Senior Instructors, certifying a minimum of 25 students. The internship usually lasts about one month but is subject to our student flow and your personal needs. The goal is for you to feel confident teaching all PADI courses and have the skills to be a great PADI Instructor. Therefore, we do not have a maximum number of certifications you can gain. You can benefit from the expertise and knowledge of all our experienced Instructors for as long as you want. For the MSDT, please see below the PADI Specialties you can choose from:

PREREQUISITES:

PADI INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION

 To become a PADI MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) you first need to be a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. This is also a prerequisite so sign up for our internship.

25 STUDENT CERTIFICATIONS

 To be certified as PADI MSDT you need to have certified at least 25 students. If you go for our MSDT & Internship combination, these 25 certifcations are included in the program.

NO HEALTH PROBLEMS

 Please read the Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.
