Introductory (Novice)

Basic Course designed as an introduction to Seagrass-Watch. For Novices.

Level 1 (Basic)

Course for experienced participants, to supervise/lead monitoring events

Level 2 (Intermediate)

Course for knowledgeable participants updating skills.

Level 2.1 (Advanced)

Course for Advanced participants. Content is structured to participant interest

WHATS INVOLVED

Training is targeted at participants with an education level of year 12 to first year university.

Participants will learn about seagrass biology, seagrass ecology, why seagrass is important and how seagrass can be damaged. Participants are trained to identify local seagrass species, undertake rapid visual assessment methods (% cover), accurately record data, preserve seagrass samples for a herbarium, photograph quadrats and identify presence of dugong feeding trails or other impacts.

Formal assessments are multiple choice questions, in an open format (participants can work in teams and use resources available).

Follow up training (“refresher”) is an important component of the program to ensure that data collection is rigorous. Training aids have been developed in consultation with participants and include manuals, field data books, and photographic reference sheets.

Building capacity

Training builds the capacity of participants to collect information critical for management and protection of important marine resources.

Training components

Training comprises of three components – formal lectures, field training exercise, and laboratory exercise. Training includes hands on experience with standard methodologies for seagrass assessment.

TRAINING REQUIRMENTS

Training is for participants 18 years of age and over. There are prerequisites to attend each level of training.
