Introduction and practical courses in Passive Acoustic Monitoring

Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) is a key survey and mitigation tool in
cetacean research. PAMTech (pamtech.eu) is offering introduction and
practical courses in PAM, teaching the use of acoustic hardware and the
leading research and industry software, PAMGuard (pamguard.org). We are a
small UK-based company made up of PAMGuard developers and experienced field
acousticians who can enable you to get the most out of PAM applications. A
high tutor-to-student ratio on our courses ensures participants can get
individual assistance with their training requirements.

Our next courses are running on:

02/05/2014
Introduction to PAMGuard. This one-day classroom-based course provides the
essentials you need to get going with PAMGuard.
Cost: £200
To book go to: http://pamguardintroduction.eventzilla.net/

03/05/2014 and 04/05/2014
Practical PAM. This course spends the first day in the classroom building
on your PAM knowledge, and the second day at sea applying practical PAM
survey techniques including the deployment, use and troubleshooting of
acoustic hardware and software.
Cost: £400
To book go to: http://practicalpam.eventzilla.net/

If you would like to do both courses (3 days), the cost is £500
To book go to: http://pamintroductionpractical.eventzilla.net/

Courses will be run in Tobermory, Isle of Mull, on the west coast of
Scotland, UK, and will use the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust's (hwdt.org)
specialist research vessel, Silurian, as the at-sea teaching platform.

It is not compulsory for participants on the Practical PAM course to have
done the Introduction course, but an equivalent level of knowledge will be
assumed. At the end of the Practical PAM course, there will be an informal
Meet-the-Developers session where you can discuss your particular PAMGuard
requirements.

Participants need to bring their own laptops running Windows XP or above
(see pamtech.eu for more information on specifications etc).

Course costs do not include accommodation, travel or food. For more
information about travel to the Isle of Mull see calmac.co.uk
