Due to popular demand, early registration for the 4-day Bio-Waves Passive Acoustic Technology training course has been extended to Wednesday October 8, 2014. After this date, a $100 late registration fee will be applied to the cost of tuition. The course scheduled to occur Tuesday, November 11th through Friday November 14th, 2014 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego. Spaces are limited and filling quickly, so registering as soon as possible is highly recommended. To register or obtain more information about the course please visit www.bio-waves.com and click on the "Passive Acoustic Technology Training Course" button on the bottom of the main page.
The 4-day Passive Acoustic Technology training course combines lectures covering concepts, theory and methods with hands-on hardware demonstrations and computer training. The aim of the course is to give participants a working knowledge of passive acoustic hardware, software and methods used to study and monitor marine mammals. The training course will familiarize individuals with passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) equipment and best practices, as well as offer instruction on troubleshooting and field repairs. We will teach the basic skills required to prepare individuals for work in the field as well as post processing in the lab. We will cover methods used for research as well as mitigation and monitoring. This course will be held at the University of California, San Diego Supercomputer Center in La Jolla, California.
The training course will include the following:
At the conclusion of the course, participants will have gained a working knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of passive acoustic system design, operation, and maintenance. They will have had hands-on experience with a variety of software programs commonly used during real-time field operations and for data review and analysis. Additionally, participants will have performed specific hardware tasks (e.g. repairing cables, troubleshooting acoustic systems etc.), and will receive a set of materials for reference in the field.
For those participants that are interested, we are pleased to offer course credit for the training course through the University of California, San Diego's Extension Program. Four quarter units are available via a separate UCSD application and fees.
To register or obtain more information about the course please visit www.bio-waves.com and click on the "Passive Acoustic Technology Training Course" button on the bottom of the main page. A $300 non-refundable deposit towards the $1,450 total fee will be required to secure your position in the course. This cost includes a light breakfast and catered lunch each day. Early registration ends on Wednesday October 8th, after which a $100 late registration fee will be applied to the total. Limited space is available at a discounted rates for groups of three or more or graduate students; discounts are available on a first come, first served basis. Also, while lodging is not available on UCSD campus, we have a list of local hotels, some of which provide discounts if attending events on campus, and will assist in coordinating room and ride share between registrants via email prior to the training.
