A new way to learn and promote conservation education in the time of Covid-19. A new online platform where students can enroll in PADI and Project AWARE courses, marine conservation workshops and learn about marine life and conservation from the comfort and safety of your home.
Nusa Ceningan, Bali - Ceningan Divers today announced the release of their online Education Centre, a new learning portal giving worldwide access to their conservation workshops focused on marine life and environmental best practices. Ceningan Divers’ Education Centre offers those interested in marine conservation an opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics from marine life, coral reef conservation, and practical skills to help them improve their knowledge of the underwater world.
“With travel restriction in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to offer a new way to share our knowledge of marine life and the conservation of our ocean planet. As a small business affected by the current situation, we saw an opportunity to provide people something unique that they can access from their homes while still promoting our passion for conservation and supporting our team” says Robert Scales, Co-Founder of Ceningan Divers.
The Education Centre offers workshops covering: mola, mantas, turtles, tropical fish, coral reefs, mangroves, and more. The mola workshop is available free of charge while the others are $20. Complete all 8 workshops to qualify for the Conservation Diver Certification Program. You can also enrol for the Project AWARE specialty eCourses available online for just $80.
"We employ 24 people each of whom is responsible for looking after their family. Beyond our innovative new Education Center, the first independently curated online learning platform built by a dive operator, we also set up a GoGetFunding campaign, which has raised over $6,500 to help us support our staff to buy food for their families and essential services such as electricity and cellular data to keep in touch with others. For those who make a donation of $50 or more on the platform, we unlock our educational workshops for them - it's a thank you from us to them which also benefits the environment.” says Robert Scales, Co-Founder of Ceningan Divers.
