The seven-day training, held from June 24, was being participated in by 30 local dive guides, Yusdi Lamatenggo said here on Monday.
The training is also expected to increase the capability of local dive guides.
By having professional local dive guides, the economy in Raja Ampat is also hoped to improve.
"We hope that local dive guides attending this training can get benefit and receive better payment later," he said.
Raja Ampat is often called "Heaven on Earth", "Miracle of Papua", "Underwater Paradise on Earth", or "Real Wonder of the World" for its mesmerizing marine panorama.
