MSDT Internship

At Scuba Center Asia, we're all about helping you reach new heights in your dive career. The Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) rating is one of the highest levels of achievement for PADI instructors. It signifies a significant level of experience and proficiency in teaching various scuba diving specialties. To earn the MSDT rating, a dive instructor must first become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) and then complete additional training in at least five PADI specialty courses.

Once the instructor (you) has taught a specified number of students in each specialty and received positive evaluations, they can apply for the MSDT rating. Achieving MSDT status demonstrates a commitment to continuing education and skill development in the diving industry.

As an MSDT, you'll be in high demand, not just here at Scuba Center Asia, but at dive centers and resorts worldwide. This rating opens doors to exciting opportunities, allowing you to expand your teaching repertoire, and advance your career. As an MSDT you get jobs as a dive shop manager or dive resort operation manager etc.

The Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating is your next big step in your PADI Dive Career. A few Q&A's:

Q: Why is the MSDT rating important as a dive instructor?

A: It shows a level of seniority in the diving industry. It means you have a certified minimum of 25 people for a PADI diving course. It also allows you to work more closely and learn from the senior dive instructors at Scuba Center Asia Lembongan.

Q: What is included in the MSDT internship?

A: At Scuba Center Asia Lembongan, you'll team up with one of our experienced dive instructors. You'll learn by working alongside them, gradually taking on more tasks and even exploring various PADI courses. Depending on your experience level, we'll set some goals for you to achieve as you assist in teaching. Food and drinks on the boat are also included. Just bring your positive attitude and professionalism—qualities our dive instructors embody!

Important to note: there are limited spots available each month. Priority is given to our own IDC candidates.

Q: How long is the MSDT training?

A: To be able to get to an MSDT level you need 25 certifications in total. At Scuba Center Asia, we split this up into packages of 5 certifications. Essentially, it means you get to co-teach until you've helped certify 5 students. This could take a week or longer, depending on the number of students and your availability. Your level of assistance and professionalism also play a role in this process.

Q: What is the price of the MSDT internship?

A: For 5 "student certs", you pay 5 mln IDR.
