Intelligent Ocean Ltd is pleased to offer two eLearning courses which can be
started at any time.

JNCC Marine Mammal Observer (MMO) eLearning Training Course (GBP 150 per

Passive Acoustic Monitoring and PAMGUARD Software eLearning Training Course
(GBP 150 per person)

The Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) MMO registered course is
required for you to work as a Marine Mammal Observer (MMO) in UK Continental
Shelf waters during offshore projects such as seismic surveys, pile-driving
and projects involving the use of explosives. This course was created in
response to the coronavirus crisis and has been approved by the JNCC as a
valid alternative to the usual classroom taught course. Alternatively,
project managers or interested parties may wish to complete this course for
awareness of how MMOs work or for Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

The Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) course is designed to introduce this
technique of monitoring for marine mammals to MMOs, researchers, project
managers or any other interested parties. It covers basic acoustic theory,
the use of a spectrogram to view example marine mammal vocalisation types
and other ocean noise, PAM equipment components, assembly and deployment and
finally an exercise in configuring the industry standard PAM software -
PAMGUARD.  This course has received recognition as an accredited Continuing
Professional Development (CPD) course by the Institute of Marine
Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).

To complete the eLearning courses you simply log in, read, learn and then
pass assessments based on the course content. You set the pace of your
learning. You will have access to the course for 12 months with the option
to renew each year for a small fee if you would like continuous access to
the course material and any updates that may occur. Courses usually take
between 1 to 2 full days to complete. Full details of how to purchase these
courses are available on our website at the following link where you can
also find details of the course content.
