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 two to four dives.
There is a cost to undertake the course, prices are detailed on the google application form.
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) (not just standard rescue Diver), current gear service records for BCD and regulator and current AS2299 Occupational Dive Medical (NOT recreational) report. Please see our Dive Requirements page for details.
