I Recently completed a Diploma of Water Operations living in South Australia through OTEN. Once I was enrolled I received constant support from the teaching team, and found the use of a number of learning mediums such as Facebook and tumblr beneficial. The knowledge and skills I have gained through the diploma made it possible to advance my career as a Hydrographer, monitoring water in the driest state of the driest country on the planet. By completing the diploma I was able to get a re-classification in my role and finish my cadetship with my employer. This has given me the opportunity to travel around the state to conduct water monitoring at places including the Eyre Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, Lake Eyre, and the Coorong. I get paid to do work I enjoy, and get to travel and see the state! I also operate a network of water monitoring sites in the Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges and the Lower Lakes and Coorong. The data I collect underpins the decision making and science behind water allocation planning and River Murray Operations. Completing the Diploma of Water Operations has opened up numerous opportunities to advance my career.
