Our beautiful coral reefs are under increasing pressures. Hosted by Ocean Advocate Nic and Zoologist James, learn why reefs are so incredibly valuable, how corals live and what we can do to protect them.


On completion of this course, you'll earn a full PADI qualification! You'll receive an e-card and this specialty counts towards your Master Scuba Diver rating.

As this course is delivered completely online, it will always be 100% live! You can choose the best date and time from the schedule below and once booked, we'll be back in touch with sign-in information.

We use Zoom to deliver our live courses. You can download it for your laptop, Apple and Android devices. It's an awesome platform where you'll get the chance to chat with your course mates and ask questions throughout the presentation. You can join using your mobile or tablet, but we've found that laptops work best to make it as interactive as possible.

We'll send you your knowledge reviews for the course beforehand so you can have them printed out or ready to fill in digitally during the course. Then afterwards, you can send a copy back to us for marking.

Nic (a PADI Course Director) and James (a PADI Staff Instructor) are the co-owners of The Fifth Point Diving Centre and The Honest Diver Supply Company.

They've been diving for over 15 years, became PADI Instructors in 2010 and between them they've taught hundreds of people to dive. They've had the privilege of diving all over the world in both warm and cold waters. They spent 4 years on Tioman Island in Malaysia running a busy dive centre before returning to the UK to set up their own business.

Nic is a true ocean advocate. She has a passion for environmental conservation and loves nothing better than sharing this passion with others. During your training, she will explain the threats that our beloved coral reefs, aquatic life and underwater habitats are facing. She will also give you practical advice to apply to your everyday life and diving skills to allow you to protect what you love.

James has a background in Zoology. Over our collection of courses, he will teach you the more scientific aspects of underwater life from the complex nature of coral polyps to the Linnaeus Classification System.

The AWARE Coral Reef Conservation course and Project AWARE Specialty course are completed entirely online. There are no dives associated with these courses so you will attend a live presentation, complete and return your Knowledge Reviews and once everything is signed off, you will be awarded your PADI qualification.

These courses also count towards your Master Scuba Diver rating.

You'll receive an e-card which can be accessed through the new PADI app and as The Fifth Point is a 100% AWARE Partner, you can pick which limited edition AWARE design you'd like on your e-card!
