  Rufford Small Grants Foundation  

 

A coral reef transectThe Advanced Certificate in Tropical Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Monitoring is a two-week long course that offers students the chance to gain certification in internationally-recognised field methodologies. The course develops and expands upon the field techniques learned in the Tropical Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Management course; it can be taken as an additional two-week unit at the end of the month-long course, or as a separate, stand-alone programme.

This field-based course offers students training and certification in the monitoring of coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass ecosystems, following the internationally-recognised methodologies of MangroveWatch, SeagrassWatch and Reef Check. Students will gain a thorough and in-depth understanding of the applications of the methodologies, experimental design and practicalities, and will acquire transferable skills that can be applied globally.

Course fees include initial theoretical classes, all training and certification upon successful completion of the programme.
