The Master SCUBA Diver course (MSDC) is a continuing education certification course for divers who desire to increase their understanding of the science of diving and develop a mastery of skills.
The title of "Master SCUBA Diver" must be EARNED.
This is a long-term mentorship program with an emphasis on student participation in formal lectures and open discussion of subjects, followed by practical application of knowledge in open water until the student can demonstrate a mastery of KSA's.
The MSDC is required for entry into leadership and technical programs, and it is also the most informative and challenging course there is for recreational diving.
The course is divided and taught in sections with the student’s Diving/Training Log being signed off for each section until all requirements are met, and will cover applied sciences, equipment, safety, environments, hazards, navigation and limited visibility, search and recovery, salvage operations, deep diving and simulated decompression, emergency procedures, self and buddy rescues, and more.
The MSD course will challenge you to really go "behind the scenes" in diving education and KSA's, and will build upon your existing knowledge, skills, and abilities, to help you truly master them.
This course is a long-term mentorship program, and students should expect weeks to months for completion, depending upon individual performance.
The minimum age for this course is:
The minimum prerequisites for this course are:
Students must supply their own equipment, and all equipment must meet safety requirements.
Note: Adult CPR training (approximately four hours) meets the required prerequisite for enrollment in the Master SCUBA Diver Course. However additional CPR training that includes two-person CPR and the use of rescue breathing barrier devices, e.g., pocket mask, face shield, is required to meet the requirements for NAUI leadership certification.
This course meets the prerequisites for entry into Technical Diving programs, NAUI Skin Diving Instructor, NAUI Assistant Instructor, NAUI Divemaster, and NAUI Instructor certifications.
Course graduates will receive a lifetime internationally recognized Master SCUBA Diver certification from the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI), and will be considered competent to perform open water dives without supervision provided the diving activities and the areas dived approximate those of training.
