Training at Sea-Bird University
Sea-Bird Scientific offers regularly scheduled four-day training classes approximately two times per year at an off-site location near our office/factory in Bellevue, Washington (12 miles from downtown Seattle). At Sea-Bird, we believe that effective training optimizes the performance of our instruments. Through our comprehensive training modules, we teach our customers how to get the most from their instruments. Training consists of comprehensive operator training on major Sea-Bird products and software, and is hands-on in nature. The curriculum covers profiling instruments, thermosalinographs, and moored instruments, and includes theory and operation, data processing, and maintenance and repair. We encourage you to take advantage of our expertise and participate in our training classes. Visit seabird.com/training for more details, or contact Payal Parikh (email@example.com) to get on the wait list for the next class in 2016.
