    “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.”

  • Dan Coles, June 2014

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