This program may take a bit longer and can be more expensive than similar programs but our goal is to make sure you are highly qualified.

Also in this program you will learn marine biology and reef conservation techniques to maximise your awareness and skills as a professional. Our objective is not to get as many students possible to join our program as it requires a lot of personal attention, therefore places are limited.
