Feedback / Testimonials

An Echoview training course brings "...clearness, the great way of teaching, making everything so clear and understandable, even the most scary equations. I came with no knowledge, and have the feeling I am ready to explore acoustics on my own, and that I understand the principles of it."
— Charlotte Havermans, Alfred Wegener Institute

Dr Toby Jarvis, Acoustician

The Fundamental training course provides "...a really nice overview and introduction to the principles of hydroacoustics to actually establish a base knowledge of the underlying concepts. Having gone through this makes every data collection step and data processing process 100% more logical and allows you to build on that knowledge... I would recommend it without a doubt to every new student that will come into the lab and wants to work with hydroacoustics."
— Sebastian Theis, University of Alberta
