Be a Reef Check Surveyor

Reef Check Australia training is a fun way to meet a tribe of reef-mind people, find out more about our beautiful reefs, boost your dive skills and build your capacity to actively contribute to scientific research. You don't need to have previous science or survey experience--we'll provide you with comprehensive training to safely collect great quality data to help look after reefs. 

We currently offer part time or full-time courses in Townsville, Cairns/Port Douglas, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, usually just once a year. 


Expressions of interest are now open for our Scuba Surveyor training in the Whitsundays region.

This training, which is part of the Whitsunday Community Reef Protection project, is funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. Spots are limited. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity – get your application in ASAP.
