*** NEWS – Online training courses are now available – visit our Online Training page for more details!
All operator courses include the basics of sub-sea acoustics and the principles supporting Sonardyne’s 6G and 6G+ acoustic positioning technologies.
Our in-water training is delivered at our Sea Trials and Training Centre in Plymouth. Training here enables course delegates to better prepare for off-shore operations and become confident in how to diagnose and overcome environmental issues.
At our regional training centres you will receive the same excellent instruction, delivered by the professional trainers from Plymouth, utilising our very latest version of 6G+ Simulator to drive the product software and mimic real-life environmental conditions.
For our online training we use the same simulator, with remote access via video conferencing, to deliver the same courses in a modular format. In every online session you will have a trainer there with you… just like in the classroom.
The maximum course size is 6 people (4 for INS courses) for face-to-face training, thus ensuring that attendees get the ideal opportunity to develop their operating skills on our products with expert support from the Trainer. Online practical training is delivered on a 1-to-1 or 2-to-1 basis to give you maximum time on the system.
Available courses include; Fusion 2 6G+ INS Operator Training, Fusion 1 (6G) LBL Operator Competency, Fusion 2 (6G+) LBL Operator Competency, Fusion 1 to 2 LBL Top Up course, Fusion 1 & 2 LBL Competency Requalification, SPRINT (USBL aided & Range Aided), Ranger2 USBL, MiniRanger2 USBL, Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar, Marksman LUSBL, DPINS, PIES, Monitor & AMTs and Connect Metrology. In addition we run 1-day practical workshops (technology taster sessions) on USBL, LBL and INS.

Many clients ask us to train a project team on a specific job prior to mobilisation and deployment. This cost-effective bespoke service has proved very helpful in identifying and avoiding potentially costly issues downstream, and gives the team the opportunity to use the equipment in the context of their project. Using a combination of live equipment and simulators we can closely emulate the hardware setup, environment and conditions expected and tailor a training package to support the job specifics. With direct access to Sonardyne training and support staff, the project team can discuss optimum configurations and settings and establish a good working relationship to ensure the project runs smoothly.
