·      Session 2- Seagrass identification and mapping presentation

·      Session 3- Seagrass mapping presentation

·      Session4- Seagrass survey methodology presentation

·      Session 5- Seagrass survey methodology practical session (to be repeated as required)

·      Session 6- Seagrass identification and methodology test  (to be repeated as required)


Reef Training

·      Session 5- Reef survey methodology presentation

·      Session 6- Reef survey methodology practical session (to be repeated as required)

·      Session 7- Reef identification and methodology test  (to be repeated as required)


Seahorse Training

·      Session 1- Seahorse identification presentation part 1

·      Session 2- Seahorse identification presentation part 2

·      Session 3- Seahorse survey methodology presentation (will also cover appropriate procedures for seahorse encounters)

·      Session 4- Seahorse survey methodology practical session (to be repeated as required)

·      Session 5- Seahorse identification and methodology test (to be repeated as required)


All final sessions also cover data entry, analysis and report procedures

Interns and volunteers will also be involved in approximately two diving- based identification sessions per day.

At the end of the land and diving training sessions listed above the interns/volunteers will be required to sit both a written and practical (in-water) test to ensure they are fully trained before being placed on a survey team. If you feel you are ready before the training sessions have finished, you may take the test early. If you pass, you can move onto the survey team earlier than scheduled.

It is important to note that each training area will have an assigned staff tutor who is available to give extra assistance and knowledge wherever needed.
