Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) Field School - 2016

In November 2016 MADU were invited to help run the first NAS course in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The course was set up and hosted by the Al Mahara Diving Centre in Abu Dhabi. The 3-day course was based on the NAS E-learning Recorder and Surveyor Skills Days, with the underwater exercises being carried out off-shore on an Old Cement Barge. 

The field school concluded with a report:
