Not any more! The PADI AWARE Fish Identification course gives you the basic identification skills so you can recognise that fish next time.

Project Aware - The benefits of understanding the plight of our fragile aquatic ecosystems are available to all, both divers and non-divers, because the underwater world that we need to survive, is being threatened.
Coral Reef Conservation - Learn about the plight of the world’s coral reefs, and how to become involved in conservation efforts to protect and conserve coral reef formations.
Digital Underwater Photography - There are two versions of the underwater photography course. Depending on which type of underwater camera you are using, there is the film or digital certification available.
