The PADI MSD Challenge is a contest for eligible PADI Dive Centres or Resorts in Asia Pacific and offers prizes for PADI Members. It is a PADI Member focused contest and tools are available to help you promote the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating to divers.
This contest is aimed to help grow interest in the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating and increase the sales of related PADI con-ed courses and student materials. PADI con-ed courses offer the perfect opportunity to widen the knowledge of your students, better understand their interests as divers, and make sure they come back to do more courses. You can also tie this in with the free PADI MSD Application available in the Asia Pacific region.
