This is the second announcement for the Passive Acoustic Technician
Training course hosted by Bio-Waves, Inc.  from Monday April 30th through
Friday May 4th, 2012 in La Jolla, California.  There are only a few spots
left, so interested participants are encouraged to register soon.

The course combines theoretical instruction with hands-on demonstrations
and training to give participants a working knowledge of passive acoustic
monitoring hardware, software and data management.  The goal of this
training course is to provide individuals with the necessary tools  and
basic skills to prepare them for work as bio-acoustic field technicians.  This
five day course will be held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, La
Jolla, California.  If enough interest is shown, there will also be an
at-sea day on Saturday, May 5th so that participants can test towed-array
operations underway.  This sea day is offered at a higher cost to the
instruction only option, and is dependent upon a required minimum number of
participants selecting this option (confirmation of the sea day will only
be available when the minimum has been met).

This Passive Acoustic Technician Training course provides information and
practical training related to the following subjects:

-the physics of underwater sound

-instruction on the setup, troubleshooting and repair of towed hydrophone
arrays

-software used to detect, localize and classify sounds produced by marine
mammals

-guidelines for effective acoustic data collection and management.
At the conclusion of this intensive hands-on course, participants will have
gained a working knowledge of practical aspects of towed hydrophone array
system design, maintenance and operations.  All participants will receive a
set of materials for reference in the field.
