Echoview Training

An Echoview training course will provide you with the skills to understand your single-beam and/or multibeam echosounder data, and to process it efficiently and accurately using Echoview.

We offer a range of course options to suit your varying needs:

  • Online or face-to-face
  • Public or private
  • Fundamental or Advanced

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran, we believe there is always more to learn with respect to:

  1. Echosounder theory
  2. Digital signal processing
  3. Echoview features
  4. Data-processing workflow

If you can't find a public course to suit and/or you're interested in a private course, please email us at and let's work something out!

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
