Seasearch Training opportunities
Learn how to record your underwater sightings correctly to make them count for marine conservation
Whether you have taken part in a marine recording project before or not, you can add to your knowledge and experience by taking part in one of our training courses. You just need to be interested in the marine environment and keen to learn more.
The emphasis is on enjoying your diving and snorkelling – by understanding more about what you are seeing underwater, then telling us about it. The courses are fun and contain a mix of illustrated talks, practical sessions and virtual dives on video to practice newly learned skills.
If you are new to this sort of diving or snorkelling, take the introductory Observer Course. These are run all around Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
There are also higher-level Surveyor Courses for those with more experience plus a range of other courses covering survey techniques, marine life identification and some of the ‘difficult-to-identify’ groups of marine life.
