Giving you the right skills for the job

Our career packages are designed with input from industry to make sure you gain the relevant qualifications plus the vital skills employers need.

Industry-experienced commercial diving instructors

At The Underwater Centre, Tasmania, we’ve been dedicated to helping people train for careers in commercial diving since the 1990s and we believe that the best training comes from people with first-hand industry experience. Our team of instructors don’t just talk the talk, they’ve got years of invaluable commercial diving experience to add to their extensive teaching skills.

Realistic open-water condition: industry equipment and practice

As well as first-class teaching to internationally accredited Australian Diver Accreditation Scheme (ADAS) standards, at The Underwater Centre you’ll spend time learning key skills in realistic open-water conditions and getting to grips with equipment and industry practice. We’re the only diver training school in the Southern Hemisphere to offer SCUBA, surface-supplied and closed bell (mixed gas) diving courses. Our aim is to provide the best commercial diver training for you and the best subsea workers for industry.

Our approach works: a recent survey showed that 90% of students at The Underwater Centre, Tasmania, were working within three months of graduating.
