Master Scuba Diver Trainer


Besides the training dives you will also get extra fun dives


After completing the IDC, you can continue your dive education with the Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).

Khao Lak Scuba Adventures offer one of the best MSDT Programs out there. The MSDT will be taught on a live-aboard trip to the Similan Islands where you will not only receive the best training conditions but also amazing diving experiences on one of the best diving locations in the World!
To achieve the full MSDT rating, you need to get 5 PADI specialty ratings and certify 25 students. We will teach you the Specialty ratings and then after completion you can get the 25 certifications teaching any PADI course. Ones you achieved the 25 certifications you can then apply directly to PADI for the MSDT rating. In the mean time you are already allowed to teach the specialties.

The Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating is highly recommended as it will increase you changes of employment and you have more options to teach different PADI courses which will only increase your salary.

Besides the training dives you will also get extra fun dives. Make a holiday out of your training!
