Speciality Instructor

Whatever your diving passion – photography, deep, wreck, conservation – there’s likely to be a speciality for it! Become an Instructor in your favourite subjects and have more fun diving, passing on your enthusiasm and knowledge to other divers, challenging them to become Master Scuba Divers.

If your interests are not represented in the list of standard specialities, why not talk to Scubaducks about writing your own course?

There are three routes to becoming a Speciality Instructor:

  1. With an Instructor Trainer. You will need to have 10 experience dives in each particular speciality, but there is no minimum number of divers you must certify
  2. Apply directly for an instructor rating. For this route, you will need to have 20 experience dives in each speciality and you must have certified at least 25 divers
  3. Write your own course

Speciality Instructor training courses are highly recommended because they provide valuable hands-on training, technique demonstrations, course marketing information, current Standards information and, when applicable, instructor-level open water training.

Once you have five speciality instructor ratings you can apply to become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).
