Description

Over the course of three days, our Basic Workshop will teach students the basics of surveying a shipwreck. We will cover: Ship Terms, Laws and Ethics, Research, Survey Tools, and Trilateration (the technique we use to measure shipwrecks) as well as much more. The workshop is designed for divers and non-divers. The work is also appropriate for novice divers. At the completion of the class, all students will become members of MAST and invited to take part in field work. The cost of the class is $170 and covers all materials needed, breakfast and lunch in April, as well as the dinner program on April 28. Please note: this is a three day class - a full weekend in April with classroom and dry run practicals. Then one of two days in May for in-water practice (May 19 or 20).
