Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT)

The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart as an elite dive instructor. You are the instructor that takes continuing education seriously and is committed to teaching a variety of courses. (Potential employers like this.) Being an MSDT signifies that you’ve got the experience and certifications to offer all the training a diver needs to become a Master Scuba Diver – the “Black Belt” of recreational diving.

Lone Star Scuba’s MSDT prep course prepares Open Water Scuba Instructors (OWSI) to become MSDT and offers 20 different specialties to choose from. It allows you to apply for MSDT much earlier than your current experience may allow. This rating is the next step up the professional ladder and is a prerequisite for IDC Staff Instructor as well as for many Tec Rec Instructor ratings.
