Training

Please check the Diary for a list of forthcoming training courses.

Much of the fieldwork used to collect information for the SHIPS Project is unmdertaken by local divers, researchers and enthusiasts so providing training is an important part of the work. We provide informal advice and guidance about what to do when you find something underwater but we can also provide formal training using the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) training scheme.

We can arrange training courses for groups, dive clubs and individual divers on a range of course levels from introduction to advanced specialist courses:

- NAS Introduction to Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology

This is a one-day introduction to archaeology and maritime archaeology

- NAS Part I Certificate in Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology

This course builds on the knowledge and skills learnt during the Introduction Course.

Training

- NAS Part II Intermediate Certificate in Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology

Use your new skills by producing a short survey report.

- NAS Part III Advanced Certificate in Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology

These are a series of advanced short courses

Example NAS Part III Advanced Certificate courses we can arrange include:
