We've adapted this course to take place online so that you don't miss out on the experience of finding out what an amazing habitat for wildlife wrecks are! Attend this course from the comfort of your home and find out what marine critters you’re likely to encounter on a wreck and how you can contribute to the recording and reporting of our threatened marine life - when we can finally get back out there.

Participants will receive Seasearch and NAS qualifications from this course.

This two-day course is an introduction to divers who are new to Seasearch and new to marine recording. At the end of the course you should be able to complete the Seasearch Observation Form and take part in Seaseach dives either on your own, with your club or on dive organised by Seasearch partners.

During the course you'll learn about Seaseach - its aims, history and achievements. You'll get a basic introduction to the variety of marine life in British and Irish waters and learn to recognise and classify marine habitats, particularly those that develop around wreck sites. You'll also learn position fixing and how to fill in the Observation Form.

Over two days, participants will observe online presentations, attend 'video dives', participate in interactive activities and have times for questions. It will be a very engaging and interesting online learning experience.
