Now is a great time to renew your passion for scuba diving by doing some self study with the Marine Ecology specialty course. It serves as a foundation for understanding the marine environment and not just for Koh Tao and you do not have to be a scuba diver either. It is open to anyone and you can study from the comfort of home or set aside some time when ever you can, the course schedule is your own.
What is it about?
- In short it explains how the oceans are made up of many different ecosystems with a broad range of differing characteristics.
- How and why the open oceans, coral reefs, intertidal zones and estuaries are different and how it has lead to the diverse life they contain in their differing ecosystems.
- It explains what effects the physical components of the oceans, such as water, temperature, movement and salinity.
- Not forgetting the impacts that humans as well as mother nature have and how we can influence its health and recovery.
You will have a greater understanding of the marine environment that you will dive or just swim in and can be a foundation for other ecology or dive courses that you will study.
How long does it take?
- There are 6 chapters to read with a short quiz after each one, followed by an online exam.
- You can take the exam as many times as necessary to achieve the required 100% pass rate. If you are a quick study it could take you just 1 day.
Who can take the course?
- Anyone over the age of 10 years can 🙂 you don’t need to be a diver so your friends can do the course too, let them know about it.
- There are no dives required to complete the course although it would be great if you want to do some.
