Why take the MSDT program at Bali Scuba?

The Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) course starts the day after the IE (Instructor Exam) and will give you 5 Instructor Specialty courses. It’s a great way to improve your earning potential because you’ll be able to teach those 5 Specialty courses to your students. It also makes you much more employable by potential employees and looks great on your diving Instructor CV!

The Bali Scuba MSDT program takes 4 days and costs IDR 7,800,000 if you took your IDC with Bali Scuba or IDR 10,400,000 if you join the course after taking your IDC elsewhere (prices exclude PADI fees)
In order to maximize the benefits you get from being a PADI MSDT we include the most popular specialty courses including Wreck, Night and Deep.



Where will I dive?

During your MSDT program you’ll dive in Tulamben and explore the World War II USAT Liberty shipwreck which is an awesome dive with over 400 species of fish. There’s also a stunning Drop Off site which boasts stunning corals and great conditions for making deeper dives.


Is there anything else I need to know?

To become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer you need to take the MSDT course AND certify 25 students. After you complete your MSDT program with us you’ll have your specialty Instructor ratings with PADI but you’ll need to wait until you have 25 certifications before you can submit your MSDT application to your PADI office. Alternatively, if you took your IDC with Bali Scuba why not join us for the MSDT Internship option which will also see you certify 25 students and gain invaluable teaching experience which will make you stand out from the crowd of newly qualified instructors?

  • I really enjoyed my experience in the IDC. Chong has a wealth of knowledge and experience and I learned a great deal from him although I myself have quite a bit of experience already. Please extend my gratitude to Chong and all the staff in Bali Scuba for making it such a memorable and valuable experience.
