Launch of the SSSI Hydrography Commission Coaching Program (HC-CP)

May 6, 2022

SSSI is pleased to launch the SSSI Hydrography Commission Coaching Program (HC-CP)

The HC-CP aims to encourage young professional hydrographic surveyors to work towards certification, be involved in the industry and Commission, and network with other professionals who they may not otherwise have the opportunity to connect with.

More specifically, the program will ensure that trainees working towards certification have identified knowledge gaps and addressed them prior to the panel assessing their application for certification. The coach will provide guidance on how best to remediate these gaps.

To be eligible:

  • Trainees and coaches must hold be a current SSSI or S+SNZ members who reside in Australia or New Zealand.
  • Trainees of any level are invited to participate. This includes 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 SSSI HC Coaching Program will commence in June 2022 and formally conclude in December.
