As part of the ongoing commitment to education and knowledge building, the Nigerian Ports Authority organises training camps for their key members of staff, including field crews as well as management.
The Anthony D Bates Partnership (ADBP) has been closely involved in these training programs and has delivered training on many aspects of engineering in the marine environment.
The training to date has included: hydrographic survey, ground investigation, navigation aids, beneficial use of dredge material, volume calculation, dredging methods, environmental impacts, quality assurance and charting.
Training is given on an ongoing basis both in country in Nigeria and also in the UK.
