Calling all Instructors who want to Save the Worlds Coral Reefs

Reef Check Executive Director Dr. Gregor Hodgson has announced the 2007 schedules for Training of Trainers sessions to be offered by the Reef Check Foundation in support of its worldwide EcoAction tropical monitoring efforts. These 2007 trainings and class materials are available on a first come first serve basis to active status industry professionals.

The Reef Check Training of Trainers course is designed to provide active status instructors with the skills and experience needed to train recreational divers in the Reef Check EcoAction tropical survey protocol. In addition to teaching survey methods, the training program addresses safe diving practices, techniques of research diving, sampling design and theory, general marine ecology including species identification and interactions, and the importance of monitoring to meet marine management needs. Trainings include a combination of classroom and field sessions. Following completion of the training, all participants will have the skills necessary to successfully complete the training examination allowing them to contribute data to the worldwide database and will be certified to teach the Reef Check EcoAction Specialty Certification (NAUI or PADI) pending RC HQ approval. Now Instructors can make money while helping to save the worlds coral reefs.
