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 are currently running on online evening theory component starting this Thursday 15 September 2022. This component is open to anyone, including those who just want to know what Reef Check Australia does, how we do it, and what we look for. This component costs $100, but does not provide certification or any in-water training. An in-water training component at an additional cost will be run in South East Queensland (on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast or Brisbane) and in the Townsville, Cairns/Port Douglas, Whitsunday region. The dates and exact locations for the in-water component have not been finalised but will be as the theory progresses. Please email [email protected] for more details.
