The Marine Expedition Management Scheme (MEMS) is an exciting and unique programme designed to be inclusive of all abilities. It aims to deliver a comprehensive training package that we believe sets the industry standard in expedition leadership. The course incorporates current recognised standards in leadership training as well as experience in operating within remote overseas environments. Participants will benefit from Coral Cay’s extensive knowledge and expertise in working in such conditions and will be closely supervised by established instructors and expedition staff.
Not only will the MEMS give the participant all the necessary skills, information, instructions and opportunities to practice in the field, it also ensures that any potential instructor is fully briefed on current guidelines, regulations and policies that contribute to running safe and successful outdoor and overseas progammes. These include BS8848, Expedition Providers Association guidelines and the enhanced Criminal Records Bureau screening system.
Coral Cay Conservation encourages all those who believe they have what it takes to work in the expedition diving industry. Please note there are limited spaces for this programme.
