MASTER SCUBA DIVER TRAINER Showing your commitment to continuing your dive training.

The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Course with DIVE WIMBLEDON

When you tell your students to aim for the PADI Master Scuba Diver certification you also want to tell them that you can take them all the way there because you're a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).

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

You're a new instructor? Just finished the IE? No problem. See your Dive Wimbledon Course Director for PADI Specialty Instructor Training and the Master Scuba Diver Trainer Prep Course.

As a PADI MSDT you are demonstrating to a dive employer that you have experience in teaching diving and can also teach a range of specialty diver courses. This makes a dive centre or resort more likely to offer you a position.

What You Can Teach

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

The Scuba Gear You 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 an instructor at this level you own your own scuba equipment. If you don't own your own equipment then Dive Wimbledon will beat any internet prices significantly when you decide to buy your own equipment.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact DIVE WIMBLEDON.


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

If you're considering entering the realm of technical dive instruction then the MSDT certification will be useful. You must be a MSDT to become an instructor in Tec 50 Diver or the DSAT Trimix Diver courses.
