Booking for Swathe Services’ HYPACK and HYSWEEP multi-beam sonar training course is now open.  The course will take place from Monday 19- 23 September 2016 in Truro, UK.

This is an intensive five-day event that is designed to offer surveyors the opportunity to receive comprehensive training in installation, calibration, data acquisition and post-processing.

By the end of the course, participants should be up to date with best practice and aware of common pitfalls.  They will also be proficient with offsets, patch test routines, interfacing, calibration and online QC.

Participants will spend part of the week on board the MV Tiger Lily.  They will learn how to use the R2Sonic 2022 MBES with Truepix and UHR 700 kHz, SBG Systems APOGEE-U, Valeport MiniSVS and SWiFT SVP.  The remainder of the week will be spent in the classroom learning how to use HYPACK and HYSWEEP.

The training will be led by Joe Burnett from HYPACK and James Williams from Swathe Services.  They will be supported by members of staff from the Swathe Services team.

The cost of the course is £1950 excluding VAT.  This fee includes all training and tuition.  The fee is designed to cover the costs of the hire of the survey vessel, survey equipment, conference room hire and staff time.  Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.

There will be a number of social events to enable plenty of time to share experiences and network with other course participants.
