Shipwreck Preservation Society

of Newfoundland & Labrador

Underwater-planning-frame-2SPSNL offered the NAS Part I course in Foreshore & Underwater Archaeology on the weekend of June 10 & 11, 2017. The course is part of the training program of the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) of Portsmouth, England. The course will be taught by Ken Keeping, Senior Tutor with SPSNL and Assistant Tutor Neil Burgess. This course is open to SPSNL members and others interested in learning about nautical archaeology and how to conduct wreck surveys.

Anyone can take part in our NAS training and it's open to divers and non-divers alike. To join this course, you need to have completed the NAS Introduction course first. To participate in the diving portion of the course, participants need to already be certified Open Water scuba divers, and need to provide or rent their own diving gear.

Cost of the Part I course is $100 for SPSNL members and $150 for non-members (so it makes sense to join SPSNL if you take this course). The course will be run in Conception Harbour, NL.

If there is demand, this course will be offered again in August. You if you would like to take it them, please email us and let us know.
