Your training starts in the classroom by learning:

  • About marine debris, the damage done, what it is, where it comes from and how divers are part of the solution.
  • How to establish a Dive Against Debris® survey, the survey frequency, sites, profiles and equipment. Also the use of photography and knowing what to leave behind.
  • How to make your survey count. The five easy steps to report the debris you’ve removed to maximize each survey’s benefits.
  • How to join the global Project AWARE movement of scuba divers protecting our ocean planet.

During your one open water dive, you will conduct a Dive Against Debris® survey, including weighing, sorting, recording, disposing and reporting your marine debris to Project AWARE.
