The CNMI Historic Preservation Office (HPO) is planning the creation of a responsible stewardship organization with the local dive community through developing links with universities to offer public training courses. Flinders University, Ships of Discovery and the CNMI HPO recognize that there is a large citizen group including dive clubs, dive shops and non-divers that supports the development of an underwater heritage trail and is eager to participate in its creation. Local dive clubs are very active and often reports new finds to the HPO regularly. Getting them involved in preserving submerged cultural heritage is key to its survival.
Methods in Underwater Archaeology Training Course
The course structure includes lectures and tutorials with a practical field trip. You do not need to be a SCUBA diver to participate in the training.
