Dear Coral List Membership:

Happy New Year!

The Institute for Sustainable Technology (iSustain Tech) is offering 
American Association of Underwater Scientists (AAUS) Scientific Diving 
Certification programs in Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands. iSustain Tech 
is a non-profit research and educational foundation established in 
Bonaire in 2016.

The certificate programs consist of two courses: 1) Scuba for Scientific 
Diving Two and 2) your choice of a Field Research Methods course 
(Underwater Archaeology, Underwater Photography, Coral Reef Ecology, 
Reef Fish Ecology, or Marine Geology). Programs are taught over a 
two-week period. By successfully completing the two courses; 
participants will receive 100 hours of preparation to become certified 
Scientific Divers with AAUS. These intensive programs have excellent 
results in terms of acquiring excellent dive skills and contemporary 
field research techniques in the discipline. It fast-tracks the AAUS 
certification that can take more than a year when done piecemeal.

You must be an experienced diver (20 dives within the last year or 100+ 
dives logged), or take the iSustain Scuba for Scientific Diving 1 – 
Fundamentals course, (one-week program), to qualify for the Scientific 
Diving Certification programs.

If you are interested in learning more about the programs; you can look
