Reef Check’s E-News
"The Coolgaree CDEP fully supports the implementation of Reef Check training on Palm Island which has been instrumental in heightening reef health and conservation awareness in the community. It is our hope that Reef Check Australia will receive the support necessary for the continued connection and expansion of its projects in indigenous coastal communities." Margaret Conway, Chairperson | Coolgaree CDEP, Palm Island
We currently offer part time or full-time courses in Townsville, Cairns, Port Douglas, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane several times each year. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
- Introduction & Methods
- Substrate ID
- Invertebrate & Impacts
The first three modules are the core course, including classroom theory components and hands-on training in the field (on SCUBA or snorkel). Once you have completed training modules 1-3, find out how to build on your skills and get invovled in our fish survey training courses (Module 4).
Our training is a fun way to meet new people interested in reef conservation, find out more about our beautiful reefs, improve your dive skills and actively get involved in scientific research. At the end of the course, both snorkelers and SCUBA divers will receive a Reef Check EcoDiver certification and be eligible to join our teams of surveyors out there in the water, collecting the important data we need to protect and rehabilitate our reefs.
The Reef Check EcoDiver qualification is recognised by the International global network of Reef Check programs, which allows you participate in survey expeditions at research sites all over the world! (Some locations may require additional training to learn regional indicators).
Find out about the requirements and activities involved in training as a Reef Check snorkeller or SCUBA diver.
