"I've used various types of sonars over the years without formal education in surveying or sonar fundamentals. Two days learning from JB completely leveled up my capabilities in both areas as well as my confidence in generating the sonar product I need. Absolutely blown away with his knowledge and ability to teach at all experience levels in a single room. Without hesitation, I can say this workshop will have lasting positive effects on my career. Truly appreciate it JB!" - Stephanie Dohner, Ph.D. Oceanographer, US Naval Research Laboratory, Ocean Sciences Division, Code 7354
"Very clear and concise information, provided at an even pace that's accessible for people of all experience and skill levels."
"This workshop is a good start for all level of user for better understanding on Backscatter Data. It's not just theory but also practical skills. Thumbs up to JB!" - Intan,THSG,Malaysia
"A fantastic training workshop! The amount of topics and material covered in a short duration in an easy to understand way was impressive. I came away with skills and knowledge that will be useful for upcoming surveys. The focus on sonar-specific setting and best practices as well as environmental/survey condition settings was extremely beneficial. I highly recommend this course if you are looking to gain a better understanding of backscatter."
"Very informational, well worth the time."
"Excellent training by Jonathan Beaudoin (JB) of HydroOctave and hosted by the University of Delaware as part of their Blue Tech initiative. I highly recommend JB's Backscatter and Multibeam workshops." – Vince Capone, Black Laser Learning
"I haven't learned this much since my IHO Cat-B training!" – Steven Le Bars, ID OCEAN
" One of the best training courses/ workshops I have attended in a while. The skill of both presenters to deliver fairly complex content in an easy-to-understand way was exceptional.
If you can only undertake one training course this year, make sure its this one! You will come out with a much better appreciation of Backscatter and Multibeam data!" – Andrew Stanley, Ocean Infinity
“The content covered in the course was excellent, especially considering the short duration. The course successfully bridged the gap between theory and practical applications, which was one of its strongest aspects. The inclusion of sonar-specific tips and notes was highly valuable.” - Sy XinhLe, Guardian Geomatics
“Very clear and concise information, provided at an even pace that's accessible for people of all experience and skill levels.”
“I highly recommend JB's services for anyone wanting to do a good job at collecting and processing backscatter data. The workshop is very detailed and tailored to the customer and extremely helpful to prevent any issues in the field.” - Gabriela De Oliveira, McKim & Creed
"A pretty well-packed and complex training, the workshop creates great solid foundation for whose who is dealing with MBES / multi-sensor datasets (processors, QC coordinators, Party Chief etc.) Hosts are extremely experienced in the topic, but the same time they do provide enough clarification on the principles and the idea behind.
The special focus is on the applied aspects, hardware - settings to be used in different circumstances - my favorite part as the field activities is something unreversible should not be underestimated. Definitely recommended for all survey enthusiasts.” – Sergey Provanov, Sulmara
"Forget what you thought you knew about multibeam and backscatter, this seminar will not only help make your data and imagery better but also help you confidently and professionally offer your services knowing your doing it all well and using best practices." - Professor Stephen Nagiewicz, Maritime History and Archaeology, Stockton University
“The saying goes that knowledge is power, and this HydroOctave course has helped make us more powerful throughout our lineup. It had much value to offer everyone, from new surveyors to seasoned experts and everyone in between. If you are looking to shore up and amp up your organization's multibeam skill base, I highly recommend this course.” - Lawrence Haynes Haselmaier, Jr.; NAVOCEANO NP431 Technical Lead; IHO S-102 Project Team Chair
“Your process for customizing the course according to the needs of the attendees coupled with your decades of expertise in the subject matter clearly enable you to provide highly relevant and effective training.”
“JB did a fantastic job with the delivery of the material and tying subjects together for all skill levels. I highly recommend this course for people involved in the hydrography community to help gain familiarity with modern bathymetry data acquisition systems, QA/QC recommendations, and troubleshooting scenarios.”
“This training should be a prerequisite for anyone coming into the hydrographic science community, as it does a fantastic job of laying the groundwork and teaching the fundamentals of such a complex subject!”
“This course was excellent! It is a practical and efficient way to ensure an entire survey team is on the same page: not only on the fundamentals, but also niche survey knowledge and nuances.”
“Direct and applied approaches to multibeam systems.”
