BPM NZ MMO Training Course

MMOs wishing to work on marine seismic surveys in New Zealand waters must successfully complete a training course consistent with the standards outlined in the 2013 Code of Conduct for Minimising Acoustic Disturbance to Marine Mammals from Seismic Survey Operations. Blue Planet Marine's NZ MMO Course is one of only a few courses approved by the New Zealand Government as meeting these standards. It is suitable for candidates new to MMO work right through to experienced MMOs or industry/government personnel keen to better understand this role.

The BPM NZ MMO Course consists of 13 modules of online distance learning and a three-day practical component. The three-day practical component includes classroom, shore- and sea-based activities designed to consolidate online distance learning, and introduce and then practice techniques essential to the role of MMO. Candidates for the course would need to be able to complete the online distance learning within the timeframe specified below and be available to attend the practical component in Auckland, New Zealand.

Candidates whom successfully complete the BPM NZ MMO Course will be capable and confident in undertaking the duties of a MMO under the Code of Conduct, and will be recognised by the New Zealand Government as 'trained' MMOs, able to work on marine seismic surveys in New Zealand waters.
