When you need to improve your data management skills
Who is it for / What will I learn?
Our Introduction to Marine Data Management training courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of the coastal, marine and maritime sectors. They are ideal for those working in ports, offshore and coastal engineering and construction, where data management and a marine information infrastructure are key to safe and efficient operations.
The aim of the training is to assist you to develop your understanding in order to achieve up-to-date and cost effective ‘best practice’ in marine data management. This will equip you to better meet the challenges that you might face in the way your data is created, managed and published, whether using proprietary or open source software as an enabler.

The work that OceanWise does in data management epitomises the way in which the hydrographic community should be moving in the twenty first century.
Robert Ward - President
A good overview of the huge topic of data management with lots of ideas to take back to the workplace and to start to implement.
Becky Conway - Principal Hydrographic Surveyor
Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association
Thank you guys, the Marine SDI workshop discussion groups were brilliant. The explanations of what an SDI is all about were easily understood and the interactive break-out sessions helped people identify with their day to day challenges and how they might be addressed.
Roger Longhorn - Secretary-General
The 'Introduction to GIS' course provided by OceanWise was much more useful than the vendor specific course as it had a marine focus and related much more to the work I do day to day.
Sam Quilliam - Hydrographic Surveyor
OceanWise made what is a dry topic very accessible to the people who need to implement it, and certainly aroused interest from the group present – who, when they become harbour masters in their own right, will need to address this issue
This training is a significant upgrade to my data management and other spheres of my professional development journey. I'm excited to implement the new knowledge and skills I acquired, furthering my contributions to Marine Conservation, Youth Capacity Development and Environmental Sustainability.
