Master Scuba Diver Trainer The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) rating sets you apart as a dive instructor who takes continuing education seriously and is committed to teaching a variety of courses. (Potential employers like this.) Being an MSDT signifies that you’ve got the experience and certifications to offer all the training a diver needs to become a Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate recreational diver rating.

About me

I prefer diving the deeper wrecks (Russian and British Freedom) around Halifax Harbour. I also enjoy warm water diving. I have been travelling to Cozumel for the last 12 years, where I have completed approximately 200 dives. I have also been diving on the Great Barrier Reef, St Lucia, Jordan, Aruba and  Newfoundland (Bell Island Wrecks and Iceberg Diving). I completed my Open Water Training November 2002 and was  certified as Open Water Scuba instructor in November 2006.     Picture I took while diving in Mexico
