Why choose Dive Centre Manly for your IDC training?

For over 30 years, Dive Centre Manly has been training instructors and running some of Sydney’s and Australia’s highest-quality PADI Learn to Dive courses facilitated at our custom-built Diver Training Centre with a heated pool and classrooms.

Conservation is at our roots, and we are incredibly proud to have been instrumental in establishing Sydney’s first fully protected Marine Aquatic Reserve, Cabbage Tree Bay. We continue to be committed to helping the ocean and educating the diving community about how they can help with our Dive Against Debris events organised in close collaboration with the PADI Aware Foundation. 

As a registered and trained SCUBA Service Centre and Hydrostatic Tank Testing Station, our team can help you expand your equipment knowledge and expertise.

There isn’t much we don’t do, and as an Instructor Development Candidate, you can call on our years of knowledge and experience every step of the way. 

What is involved:

The Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program is one of two distinct components of PADI’s Instructor Development Course (IDC)—the core of PADI Instructor training. The first portion is the Assistant Instructor course followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor program. The OWSI program is a minimum of four days. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.
