Although Project AWARE is already fully embedded within the PADI education system there is now a brand new Project AWARE PADI IDC presentation. The presentation its self is optional, but here at Trawangan Dive we are passing that option over to the candidate. Once the IDC is finished and candidates have also passed their PADI Instructor Examination, they will have a series of additional optional workshops including a C.V workshop, the new PADI Open water Course and now the Project AWARE presentation.
The presentation starts with a short but fun and informative quiz, which is designed to give instructors an example of how to present factual Project AWARE information in a fun and educational manner. It basically provides instructors with some information about who Project AWARE as an organization, what they are doing and highlights some of their achievements. The presentation also covers:
- The role of the PADI Professional within the Project AWARE foundation; which includes the roles and responsibilities of PADI Professionals, highlighting the PADI Professional as a role model and the influences that can be gained by those under their guidance. Ultimately the PADI Professionals being identified as leaders in the field and the voice of the Project AWARE Foundation that stands between them and their community.
- The significance of the Project AWARE business; thus highlighting the alliance between PADI and Project AWARE and its importance in making a difference and having the voice of the foundation heard. Highlighting the fact that without this alliance and resource its significance would not be so great and The Ocean will not return to an abundant, healthy state without us.
- What you can do; highlighting ideas for awareness and fundraising events giving examples of previous and successful events from around the globe. Also providing tips on how to achieve a good response from social media and customer base awareness programs.
- Follow Project AWARE's 10 Tips for Divers to Protect the Ocean Planetto help PADI Professionals support and promote the good work of the Project Aware foundation in their everyday life so as it becomes second nature to spread the word of this amazing foundation including their aims, goals and achievements.
