SSSI has announced the launch of the SSSI Hydrography Commission Coaching Program (HC-CP), which encourages young hydrographic surveyors to work towards certification.

The program also seeks to have young professional become more involved in the industry and with the Commission, and give them the opportunity to network with other professionals.

HC-CP will ensure that trainees working towards certification have identified knowledge gaps and addressed them prior to the panel assessing their application for certification. Coaches will provide guidance on how best to remediate these gaps.

To be eligible, trainees and coaches must be current SSSI or S+SNZ members who reside in Australia or New Zealand.

Trainees of any level can participate, including students, recent graduates or members working towards certification.

Coaches must be a current Certified Professional Hydrographic Surveyor at Level 1 or Level 2 with a minimum of four years of experience. (The program is not compulsory for certified surveyors — involvement is voluntary.)

Potential trainees are welcome to organise a colleague or contact from their organisation to participate as their coach. This should be noted on the application form.

The Program will commence in June 2022 and formally conclude in December. Applications close Tuesday, 31 May 2022.
