Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) Introduction Course In Underwater Archaeology
The Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) is an international organization dedicated to advancing education in nautical archaeology at all levels and to encouraging the participation of members of the public at all stages. The The NAS International Training Program has been delivering courses in nautical archaeology for over 25 years. The program aims to provide not just an introduction to the subject but also to offer people a chance to build their skills and experience, allowing them to take part in projects and fieldwork around the world and perhaps to run their own projects. The Training Program has a modular structure, starting with an Introduction Course and working through the Part I to III Certificates and finally Part IV Diploma.
The first stage of the NAS Training Program, the Introduction Course, is a weekend of training introducing participants to the subject of nautical archaeology. Combining a mixture of classroom and practical sessions, the course aims to promote nautical archaeology to those interested in learning about concepts and basic methods in underwater archaeology. The introduction course requires no prior learning or qualifications and the program offers presentations in a wide range of topics and subject areas within nautical archaeology. It will involve instructors who are ECU university professors for the
Program in Maritime Studies and leading underwater archaeologists who direct projects and manage underwater cultural resources in North Carolina.
