Educating & inspiring Dive Professionals to conserve our marine environment
All Dive-Careers' Divemaster and Dive instructor packages include Marine Conservation seminars and reef ecology workshops. Our packages also includes a Marine Resource Management course outlines and supplemental DVD materials. Thailand has some great coral and marine environment education programmes on both Koh Tao, and Koh Phangan.
Our Divemaster and Instructor programmes on Koh Tao include marine resource management seminars and coral and fish identification workshops. We also offer our candidates the chance to participate in coral reef regeneration, with programmes beginning for seahorse breeding and reintroduction
Education is a vitally important part of any successful marine conservation programmes. Through promoting correct environmental interaction and understanding, the dive industry can position itself as part of the solution to the threats that face marine environments globally. Through education Dive-Careers Worldwide aims to inspire dive professionals to have a positive impact on our marine environments.
We also encourage you to take that knowledge further with environmental internships that Dive Careers conducts in conjunction with CORE Sea on neighbouring Koh Phangan. These internships are the only diving internships with a credible scientific base conducted in the Gulf of Thailand.
A strong understanding of the marine environment is what will make you a great dive guide and dive instructor. From a Dive Careers Divemaster and Dive Instructor internship you will gain the knowledge to give really entertaining and informative dive briefings with loads of interesting marine life facts. This is what will make you stand out as an employable dive guide and instructor. Your divers and students love to hear entertaining facts from the underwater world.
COURSES WE OFFER
KOH TAO C.O.R.A.L (Conservation Of Reefs & Aquatic Life)
The C.O.R.A.L experience involves a morning where you learn to understand captive propagation of corals, under controlled conditions, and a hands-on ‘fragging workshop’ to prepare new specimens. The afternoon consists of two dives where captive specimens are reintroduced back into the reef, and new coral colonies are collected for analysis upon return. We aim to record data from all dive sites in Koh Tao to get a better understanding of why certain species appear, and what preventative measures can be taken to help save our reefs. Our future objectives are to reintroduce lesser seen species to Koh Tao, such as sea horses, rays, shrimps, and even sharks…do you want to learn more and be part of the solution?
