We are proudly announcing the Fall 2012 Ocean Awareness Training on Oahu! This will be the *10th* session offered on Oahu - our first big anniversary that was made possible by the continuous support and commitment from all of you! We are very fortunate to have such a great pool of speakers who share their knowledge and expertise with the participants, and our local partner organizations who connect the classroom training sessions with hands-on field experiences.

Participants learn about current ocean conservation efforts and opportunities to get involved. The program is recommended for those employed or volunteering in the fields of marine education or recreation, or those interested in doing so. Instructors include university scientists, government agency staff, environmental educators, and conservation practitioners.

Participants are required to take part in all training sessions (~15 hours of instruction), and a three-hour field project in order to receive C.O.R.A.L. certification (Care of our Culture, Oceans, Reefs and Animal Life). Training topics include marine ecology of the Hawaiian Islands, protected species, threats to coastal and marine environments, marine life identification and more.
