Specialty Instructor, MSDT

The PADI Specialty Instructor Program is designed to allow you to feel confident and comfortable conducting PADI Specialty Programs.

Specialty courses offer you as an instructor the ability to cater to the needs and desires of your clients.   Plus, you reduce your liability and further your enjoyment of diving by being able to focus on the aspects of diving you are passionate about.   The course allows you to begin teaching specialties without having to teach twenty five students.  These certifications can then count toward your certification requirements for Master Scuba Diver Trainer.  Most importantly, you will develop the experience and confidence to be able to conduct a wide range of specialties.
The course includes:
• Familiarization with the Specialty standards, curriculum and procedures.
• Development of instructor level specialty skills.
• Practice conducting student specialty skills.
• Working with specialty students.
• Marketing of specialty courses.
• Specialty course knowledge development.
• Conducting specialty dives.
• Business of specialty instruction.
• Materials and application fee.
