The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Course

As a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer MSDT you tell your students to aim for PADI Master Scuba Diver. 

Camille offers the PADI MSDT Internship as an add on to all of his PADI IDC programs. This will help you finding employment after successfully completing your PADI IDC and PADI IE.

On Koh Lanta you can dive Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. Certainly a good place to see Manta rays. In Khao Lak you can visit the Similan islands during a day trip. Lots of sightings of marine life are possible. Ranging from whale sharks, via leopard sharks to guitar sharks. If you're really lucky you get to see a manta ray.

Last but not least, on Malapascau in the Philippines we visit Monad Shoal daily. Here you get the change to see the thresher sharks.

What's holing you back? Sign up for my MSDT programs and get hands on experience. It's fun and you leans heaps!
