The Project AWARE Specialist Course serves as a fundamental gateway to the worldwide Project AWARE movement. Which tirelessly champions the cause of ocean conservation. This course places a strong emphasis on the 10 Tips for Divers to Protect the Ocean Planet. Which serve as a guiding framework for responsible and sustainable diving practices. Through dynamic and interactive discussions, participants are not only educated but inspired to take tangible actions for ocean preservation on every dive and during their travels.

One remarkable feature of this The Project AWARE Specialist Course is its inclusivity. It warmly welcomes divers and non-divers alike. It unveils the complex tapestry of connections between human decisions, whether on the surface or beneath the waves. Thus having a profound impact they have on our planet’s aquatic ecosystems.

In the absence of actual diving, the course offers a ‘fins off’ approach. This focus on the broader picture of how our choices affect our water planet. It encourages individuals to look beyond the surface, recognising that every decision, no matter how seemingly small, plays a role in the health and sustainability of our oceans.
