Dear MARMAMers

SMRU Ltd are pleased to announce our next PAMGuard training Course will be on the 25th & 26th March in St Andrews, UK.

To book or if you have any questions please email info at smru.co.uk<mailto:info at smru.co.uk?subject=PAMGUARD%20Training>

The course dates have been set to follow on directly from one of the visual Marine Mammal Observer Induction courses<http://www.carolynbarton.co.uk/> run by Carolyn Barton which will take place on the Tuesday and Wednesday of that week

Courses will take place over the two days and will run from 13:00 to 17:00 on the first day and from 09:00 to 12:30 on the second day. This will give attendees time to travel to and from St Andrews, and a free evening in which to digest the content of the first afternoon.


St Andrews, Fife, Scotland.

Course Content

The course will comprise both lectures and practical sessions.

Day 1 (afternoon)

Lecture - An introduction to PAM

Day 2 (morning)

What you should bring

Course attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer, and mouse. At the very least, this means you will leave St Andrews with a working PAMGUARD configuration on your machine. Please notify us in advance if you are unable to bring your own laptop.

A number of USB sound cards and GPS connections will be made available. Attendees may also wish to bring their own sound cards, GPS receivers and any other hardware they wish to receive specific advice on.


Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Further details of the course location and travel information will be provided following registration.

For further information, please email: info at smru.co.uk<mailto:info at smru.co.uk?subject=PAMGUARD%20Training>


The courses will be led by Dr Douglas Gillespie of St Andrews University, one of the principle architects of the PAMGUARD software. There will also be other experienced PAMGUARD operators and developers to help with one to one tuition during the practical sessions.


All lectures will be given in English.

We hope to see you there!
