AWARE Specialty Courses
Project AWARE’s philosophy is to mobilize a global force of scuba divers and water enthusiasts who care about protecting the world’s water resources and choose to make a difference – one dive at a time. By earning the Project AWARE Specialist certification, you’ll be aware of the most pressing problems facing vulnerable aquatic environments and know what everyday actions you can take to help protect them.
AWARE Coral Reef Conservation
Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they’re seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.
AWARE Fish Identification
You’ll find that you enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see. The fun part about this course is that you can use the skills you've learned on every scuba diving vacation because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you to decipher the species you see all over the world. It comes with a Waterproof Caribbean Fish-in-a-Pocket Guide!
