Caris Now at Maritech Training Centre - 23/10/2003


The Maritech Group has added CARIS software products to the portfolio of courses offered at the Maritech Training Centre. The arrangement was agreed recently between Mr Arron Burrows, Innovation Manager of Maritech and Mr Maarten Peters, Sales Manager of CARIS BV, and commenced with two fully booked CARIS HIPS/SIPS courses during June and July. The CARIS software is being utilised on the National Seabed Survey of Ireland for which Maritech were awarded the personnel supply contract. These initial courses are being run to train and update both Maritech and The Marine Institute of Ireland personnel specifically for this three-year project. The courses will be conducted by CARIS staff from the training centre based at the Beacon Innovation Centre, near Gt. Yarmouth, Norfolk in the UK. Initially, a five-day ‘open’ CARIS HIPS/SIPS course will be offered for Bathymetric and Sonar data processing (collection and processing of singlebeam, multibeam or sonar image data). See the new Maritech website for full course details. Other CARIS software courses (i.e. Nautical Charting, HOM (S-57)) are likely to be added to the Maritech training portfolio at a later date.
