There will be a JNCC-recognised MMO course for UK waters on 30th November
and 1st December, remote delivery by Zoom.

This course will cover all the information needed for work as a Marine
Mammal Observer (MMO) in UK waters.  Taught by an instructor with over 25
years experience, the course content includes:

1) Impacts of noise on marine mammals
2) Introduction to activities that require mitigation
3) Legislation protecting marine mammals and marine licensing
4) Detailed examination of the JNCC guidelines for geophysical surveys,
pile driving and explosives
5) Data recording and reporting requirements
6) Visual monitoring and distance estimation
7) Overview of passive acoustic monitoring
8) Working as an MMO/ PAM operator
9) Identification of marine mammals

Zoom sessions will be a mixture of lectures and exercises, over 1.5 days.
Any exercises not completed during the sessions can be completed in your
own time.  There is also an online multiple choice exam to be done at your
convenience after the Zoom sessions (re-sits are possible if you don't pass
first time).  Each delegate gets individual feedback on their exercises and
the exam.

The cost of the course is £180 (180GBP).  On successful completion of the
course (including the exercises and exam) you will receive JNCC-recognised
certification, which is required for work as an MMO in UK waters.
