We want to make sure you're comfortable with foundational SCUBA skills before you join the Reef Check surveyor course, so course participants must meet the following criteria:
- PADI Advanced Open Water diver, or equivalent
- Evidence of 25 logged dives with 2 in the past 6 months
- Provide your own dive gear
- Fit to dive
In addition to at home study, and classroom sessions, you'll have the chance to put your skills into practice with four to six dives.
There is a cost to undertake the course, prices will be advised when course dates are set.
Please read our survey diver requirements prior to signing up as a trainee! Our Reef Check surveyors have additional requirements beyond those for the course. This includes: AQF Rescue Diver certification (or above), current gear service records for BCD and regulator and current AS2299 Occupational Dive Medical report. Please see our Dive Requirements page for details.
