Sonardyne Training Courses

Atlas Professionals invests in people. Therefore we provide our professionals the opportunity to attend Sonardyne training courses at the Plymouth Training Academy. For those who work regularly for Atlas, a discount is available.
First principles
Environmental conditions offshore can change with little or no warning, so a thorough understanding of first principles enables operators to respond to changing conditions and resolve any problems that might arise quickly and effectively. Following the completion of the theoretical elements of the course, attendees then get onto the water for hands-on training with real equipment onboard the Company’s training and trials vessels.
Real operating environment
Sonardyne has transponders permanently deployed in the estuary of the River Tamar, itself a very challenging operating environment for acoustics. Participants have the opportunity to gain experience of operating a USBL or LBL system in these difficult conditions, and are challenged by the instructors to overcome any problems they encounter. The courses are designed to test attendees’ understanding of the underlying measurement processes and provide invaluable preparation of personnel for the use of these systems in the workplace.
High instructor-to-pupil ratio
Plymouth courses are small, usually no more than six, and places are allocated on a first come first served basis. The very high instructor-to-pupil ratio ensures that all attendees get the opportunity to individually practice configuring and operating systems. An exam at the end of each course provides employers with a valuable assessment of the new skills their staff have acquired.
