Start dates Once a month

Instructor is the second PADI professional level, the next level up from Divemaster. Instructors focus on teaching dive skills and are needed to conduct a broad range of programmes for both new and experienced divers.

Instructor courses are run every month and take 2 weeks. You may also want to continue on to become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer level and complete an internship where you start to teach your first students.

If you are not yet a Divemaster, please see our Divemaster page as you will need to reach this level first before moving on to Instructor.
For information about the PADI system and what the Instructor course involves please click here.

You will be based on Koh Tao, a beautiful and fun island, which is now one of the world’s top dive training locations. For more details about the location, lifestyle and dive school click here.

Master Scuba Diver Trainer
If you are serious about a career as an Instructor, we highly recommend going on to do the Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) internship programme which normally runs for 2-6 weeks.

An MSDT is an Instructor with 5 specialties and at least 25 certifications (students you have taught and certified).

Initially you are taught how to conduct lessons in the specialty areas. Then you start the internship which allows you to work with the Instructor team, teaching all levels of courses. Gradually you are given more responsibility and in the final phase you will be independently teaching courses and may have the opportunity to earn your first paid commissions!

The basic MSDT programme is an additional £350 and includes:

5 Instructor Specialties
First 25 certifications
MSDT internship

Or for £650 we provide an inclusive package, also including:

PADI MSDT application fees
PADI MSDT speciality fees (x 5)
