I will give you a role model demo. of how to teach the diver course (as your Course Director, I will be present and in control).  PADI will charge you a one-off app. fee for each Specialty Instructor cert., which, in 2013, is just AUD 77 if you do the course with me.  If you do five at the same time with me in the Philippines, they will just charge you for four.  If you do five with me at the same time on Koh Tao, they will give you your MSDT card free once you have your 25 certs.  If you do this course with me, you do not have to wait for your 25 certs. before you may teach it.  Your yearly fees will not go up if you can teach more courses or if you are MSDT or IDC Staff.
