CRRU's three day IMarEST-accredited Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) training course combines theoretical study with practical experience to equip participants with the necessary skills to perform the role of a PAM Operator.
During this course, trainees will acquire a thorough knowledge of this important role and a broad insight into the industry requirements for PAM mitigation. In addition to detailed theory, the course includes a practical introduction to using and setting-up the PAM system and associated PAMGuard software. This is followed by a practical course component which includes a full demonstration at sea where participants will get to put the classroom theory into practice: deploying the system from a boat and subsequently analysing data acquired from real-time acoustic recordings.
The 3-day course will be delivered by PAM personnel with years of industry experience and acoustic know-how, and the cost of the course is £450 per person (which includes reference material, practical guidelines, worksheets etc).
Courses can also be organised for groups of 8 or more participants and accommodation and full board can provided at extra cost.
