CCMI provides a wide variety of education programmes for students of all ages. Through these programmes we hope to train new leaders, researchers, policymakers, and resource managers. Courses offered at the Little Cayman Research Centre range from three days to three months and provide many unique opportunities for a rare hands-on experience in the pristine marine ecosystem surrounding Little Cayman. Students and guests have the ability to interact with resident educators, staff scientists, and visiting researchers in very close capacity to become fully immersed in the day to day life of a field based research station. We are always looking to improve upon our education programmes to further enhance the needs and experience of our visitors, and would be happy to work with you to develop the right course or workshop for your needs. Please contact us if you would like to discuss further options. See the full 2015 Education Review here.
