We will explore good practices to minimise marine litter and discover the varying times taken for litter to degrade. Through games and arts and crafts we will appreciate marine animal’s interdependence on each other and their habitat and how they can be affected by marine litter.

    “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.”
