Project AWARE’s philosophy is to mobilize a global force of scuba divers and water enthusiasts who care about protecting the world’s water resources and choose to make a difference – one dive at a time. By earning the Project AWARE Specialist certification, you’ll be aware of the most pressing problems facing vulnerable aquatic environments and know what everyday actions you can take to help protect them.

Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world should take this course. There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this non-diving specialty.

 Through classroom discussions, you learn:
  • How Project AWARE unites scuba divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.
  • About environmental issues in the ocean commons and coastal zones.
  • About fisheries challenges and sustainability problems.
  • What’s happening to coral reefs and reef inhabitants.
  • Your role in protecting aquatic environments.

Cost for this course is $50 per student and open to all ages.  This is a great and informative class for anyone who cares about our waterways or wants to know what they can do to help clean up our waters.  Pre-registeration is highly encouraged.  Come into Central Oregon Diving to sign up.

Project AWARE Workshop

Join us at Central Oregon Diving for a Project AWARE® workshop on May 13th from 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM and learn how you can help preserve our oceans.

Project AWARE® is a global movement for ocean protection powered by a community of adventurers. We connect the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation.

We believe in a people-powered movement. We believe that each of us, every day, has the power to engage in making the world a better place. We don't just want to conserve the ocean - we want to live in a world where the ocean no longer needs protecting.

Workshop is open to the public. No pre-study required! Cost of the workshop is $55 and if you’re doing the Master Scuba Diver Challenge this summer, this course counts toward your goal.

Pre-register at the shop by May 11th.
