PHUKET: The Phuket office of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) has made public its fully overhauled handbook for marine tour operators, including the relevant laws and penalties, in the hope of making the industry safer and environmentally sustainable.

 

The “Handbook for Dive Controller Training Course for Tourism and Coral Reef Ecosystem Sustainability” totals 97 pages, and includes laws and regulations related to marine tourism activities as well as “best practices” in keeping tourists safe while protecting the environment, especially corals.

 

“The handbook is aimed at setting the standards for all tour operators, including dive tour operations, to follow,” explained DMCR Phuket office Director Watcharin Na Thalang .

So something like a teach yourself booklet....follow the instructions and tourists will be safe!

So much better than offering a comprehensive certificate training course conducted by real experts....
