PADI Specialty Instructor

Before we start talking about PADI Specialty Instructor programs we would like to offer our congratulations on becoming a PADI Instructor following your PADI IDC and IE. You can now teach all the core PADI courses up to PADI Divemaster. But what is diving really interests you? Do you have a particular interest in underwater photography or wreck and deep diving? Or quite simply do you just want to be able to offer more courses that you can teach as an instructor and make it easier for you to find diving instructor jobs?

Training Details

PADI Specialty Diver courses at Real Divers are conducted over one or two days by our PADI Course Director.
The training consists of one day in the classroom where you will give presentations on subjects from your chosen specialty course to the Course Director in the same way that you did on your PADI IDC. The Course Director will give a teaching presentation on how best to conduct specialty diver training with specifics on your chosen specialty.

The following day you will be on the boat giving open water specialty teaching presentations where you will teach a skill from your chosen specialty diver course to your fellow Specialty Instructor candidates with the Course Director looking on.

For both presentations, the PADI Course Director will offer positive feedback and ways that you could improve your technique and any control and safety-related issues.

After this, you will be signed off as a PADI Instructor specialty for the particular specialty and the application sent into PADI.


The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating denotes that you have certified at least 25 students and at hold at least 5 PADI Specialty Instructor ratings. It is the next step up the PADI ladder from Open Water Scuba Instructor and a pre-requisite certification for PADI IDC Staff Instructor.

Real Divers offer a PADI “MSDT Prep” package of 5 PADI Specialty Instructor courses to enable you to move towards the MSDT rating. This helps in this goal in 2 ways. First, you have the required 5 PADI Specialty Instructor ratings. Secondly, if you can teach more courses then you will probably find it easier to get more certifications and earn the MSDT rating quicker. It also breaks up teaching the PADI core courses which can become repetitive.
