What's it about?
Gain experience and discover more with the NAS Skills days. 

NAS Recorder and Surveyor Days introduce maritime archaeology fieldwork basics such as: site sketching, photography and video, 2D survey,  what to do with small finds and how to report your exciting discoveries. Complete the essential training you began with your eLearning courses at these practical Skills Days.

Who's it for?

The course is aimed at divers who want to 'dive with a purpose' and learn how to develop their practical skills in recording and surveying archaeological sites.  

This is a two-day, underwater diving course and participants are required to have a minimum BSAC Sports Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent diving qualification. You should have completed at least five dives in UK waters in the last year.

This two-day practical underwater archaeology course costs £130 for NAS members (does not include entry fee for Vobster or air fills) and the related online theory costs £85. Sign up for the Underwater Combined online theory here
Upon completion of the three day practical course and online theory courses, participants will receive the NAS FOUNDATION QUALIFICATION.

The NAS reserves the right to cancel courses or events 4 weeks in advance of a course if insufficient bookings have been received. Please do not book non-refundable travel and accommodation until you have been notified by email that the course is definitely going ahead.

Participants are permitted to cancel and receive a refund (minus the transaction fees incurred by the payment provider) up to four weeks in advance of a course  or event date. They are also able to defer their booking to any other NAS course or event instead of receiving a refund. If participants wish to cancel within the four weeks prior to the course or event, they will forfeit their booking fee unless there are circumstances which the NAS, in its absolute discretion, considers sufficiently mitigating as to warrant a partial or full refund.

Applications for a refund within the four weeks prior to  the course or event must be submitted in writing (electronic submission is acceptable) and such evidence as the NAS may reasonably require must be provided to support the application.
