MEOPAR’s Training Program is an integral part of the organization, providing value-added training and networking opportunities to our highly-qualified personnel (HQP) working on research projects throughout the Network.
The HQP range from undergrads through to PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, and research associates and technicians, with a range of experience and expertise in many areas. MEOPAR’s HQP and HQP alumni are known as “MEOPeers.”
In Cycle II, the Training Program will offer more hands-on opportunities such as mentorships, internships and connections with potential employers. Work-integrated learning opportunities will help ensure that MEOPeers are well-equipped for the transition from university to post-graduate employment, and that employers have access to a well-trained and qualified workforce in marine risk and resilience.
