You'll be able to teach the specialties you love and watch your diver's progress from Open Water right up to Master Scuba Diver. You'll increase your income with multiple level training and by taking the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating (MSDT) you'll meet one of the requirements to qualify as a PADI Master Instructor.
