OBJECTIVES

With interactive experiments the children will discover the physics of sound in water and get hands on in using a hydrophone to detect underwater sounds.

Through games, activities and visual presentations we will discover how sound travels through different mediums, how marine animals communicate with sound and how the world’s deepest diving whale uses sound to capture its prey in complete darkness.

DURATION

    “I especially appreciated the amount of hands-on training with the data processing software and user interface. This included deployment of an actual PAM array and operation of the PAM monitoring equipment in a realistic survey scenario, complete with cooperative vocalizing dolphins.

    Hands-on practice completing the standardized data sheets used by BOEM and JNCC were also features that I thought left the potential PAM operator ready for real-world application of his or her training.

    The materials and practical training give the students all they need to succeed as a professional PAM operator.”

    “Excellent. A superb mix of theory and practical. The course leader provides expert up to date knowledge, information that is both easy to absorb and follow whilst being comprehensive. I would highly recommend this course for potential MMOS.”

    “The practical side of the course was essential as it gave a very real experience of the role played by an MMO offshore.”
