Master Scuba Diver
Join a best of the best, the elite group of respected divers who have earned this rating through both significant experience and scuba training.
Join the best of the best in recreational scuba diving and live the dive life as a PADI Master Scuba Diver. The Master Scuba Diver rating places you in an elite group of respected divers who have earned this rating through both significant experience and scuba training. Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures.
Every diver, who is at least 12 years old, should aim for Master Scuba Diver.
The path starts with earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification, followed by PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certifications). You also need to earn five PADI Specialty Diver certifications and have logged a minimum of 50 dives.
We support the two different methods of scuba diving training, traditional and Online.
Traditional (Paper Manual) - Varies
This is the first step after signing up and receiving your study materials. You will need to read the Specialty Manual and view a DVD. After you have studied and completed the videos make sure you complete the knowledge reviews for each chapter.
Online - Varies
PADI’s Online Training program is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace.
