About Amanzi

The word "Amanzi" is derived from a Zulu term meaning WATER. The term truly encompasses everything that we are -

Offering divers the opportunity to master the skill of instructing others in the art of exploring the underwater environment.

Amanzi Instructor Development has been operational in excess of a decade teaching Padi Scuba and Swimming Instructors in South Africa and Mozambique.

At Amanzi we pride ourselves in quality training where merely passing an exam is not an end goal. We focus on real life applications and our training supercedes minimal required training days to ensure candidates leave as well equipped professional scuba and swimming educators.

Amanzi is headed up by Platinum Padi Course Director, Colleen Bernard, who has actively been working in the industry since 1996.We also have a dynamic team of extremely experienced and capable staff instructors who help ensure comfortable ratios and diversity of training.

Amanzi has been exceptionally influential in local upliftment and was responsible for training the first local Mozambican and Malawian Instructors through the scholarship programme.

At Amanzi we don’t just train instructors - We share the secrets of how to transform people's lives.
