PAMTech (pamtech.eu) has got two courses coming up in Edinburgh, Scotland,
which are now available for booking: a Practical Introduction course in
May, and an Advanced course in October. PAMTech is a small UK-based company
made up of PAMGuard (pamguard.org) 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.

1. Passive Acoustic Monitoring: a Practical Introduction
 06/05/2016 and 07/05/2016
This is a unique two-day PAM introduction course providing the essentials
you need to get going with PAMGuard and start working in the field. PASSIVE
gives participants a strong grounding in key aspects of cetacean passive
acoustic monitoring, including the capabilities and uses of PAMGuard, the
leading research and industry software. The course includes how to
configure PAM hardware and troubleshoot problems. Participants will have
the opportunity to record and process real-time data. Different types of
PAM research including some of the latest methodologies are also discussed.

2. Advanced PAMGuard

This two-day classroom-based course allows those with previous PAMGuard
experience to get to grips with more advanced features, focusing on offline
analysis and data management. The course will include some core analysis
modules, but participants will also be able to tailor training to their
particular needs by selecting from a range of optional modules including
complex classifiers and localisation techniques, and the PAMGuard MATLAB
library. There is also the opportunity to bring your own datasets and
explore ways they can be analysed using PAMGuard.
