Pro-MMO NZ Training Course

Gardline Environmental Ltd is a MMO training course provider for New Zealand approved by New Zealand's Department of Conservation (DOC).

The Pro-MMO NZ entirely meets the requirements of the curriculum outlined in the '2013 Code of Conduct for Minimising Acoustic Disturbance to Marine Mammals from Seismic Survey Operations'. This dedicated training programme is devoted to producing competent, professional marine mammal observers, capable of implementing the requirements of the Code, in terms of mitigation as well as scientific data collection, during seismic operations within New Zealand waters.

MMO training for New Zealand is the most comprehensive and stringent in the world with extensive theoretical and practical requirements. The course consists of a series of extensive modules which are available through interactive distance learning prior to the practical component.  Candidates will need to be able to complete the theory modules during the time frame outlined below and be available for the practical field days in New Zealand.

The course is designed to be of benefit to both experienced and inexperienced MMOs.

Candidates who successfully complete this course will be certified as 'trained' observers as per standards in the Code.  After gaining a minimum of 12 weeks of experience working on seismic surveys in New Zealand, trained observers will then advance to the status of 'qualified' observers.
The course dates and place:
a) Distance learning 1st - 21st September 2014
b) Field based 23rd-25th September 2014 Auckland, New Zealand
The course cost:
£1200 or AUD $ 2150
The course fee includes both distance learning and field based component, lecture and handout material and ID book.
