AAUS Scientific Diving Course

The Albanian Center for Marine Research is offering a scientific diving course for the 2012 field season. This course complies with the 100+hour American Academy of Underwater Science standards. Students will gain diverse diving experience, participate in ongoing underwater research, and learn diving theory and methods in classroom sessions taught by experts in the field from institutions including East Carolina University, the Albanian Institute of Archaeology, and RPM Nautical Foundation. Almost daily dives over the two-week course will expose students to a variety of habitat types found along the southern Albanian coastline, as well as the best practices for conducting hypothesis-based research, environmental survey, and archaeological methods. The diving course also offers a necessary component to participate in other ACMR field school offerings.
