Seiche Training is holding a training course in Devon, UK, which provides Marine Mammal Observer (MMO) 11-12 June and Passive Acoustic Monitor (PAM) 13-15 June certification. Both courses will include a boat trip to provide experience in locating and identifying protected species at sea, as well as practice in methods for distance estimation.

This MMO training is approved by the Join Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) to provide Marine Mammal Observer certification for seismic surveys and is accepted in various other industries and regions where mitigation for marine mammals is needed.  MMO/PAM operators monitor for marine mammals and sea turtles and advise on the measures required to reduce impacts to the animals worldwide.

The MMO course looks at Noise in the ocean, the regulations for minimising risks to marine mammals during industrial activities, marine mammal identification and documenting animal behaviour, data collection and report writing.  The PAM course includes an introduction into sound in water, looking at how sound propagates, marine mammal vocalisation using PAMGuard, with practical sessions and hardware set up, installing and deploying the equipment on a vessel.
