The Wisconsin Underwater Archeology Association (WUAA) is pleased to announce it is expanding its underwater archeology training program by partnering with the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) based in Portsmouth, United Kingdom.The forthcoming WUAA and NAS certification training workshop will be open to anyone interested in furthering their knowledge of underwater archaeology and maritime history. Internationally recognized, the NAS program provides the knowledge and skills to help archaeology projects in Wisconsin and around the world.

Participants in training workshops learn underwater archaeological site mapping, historic ship construction methods, how to use archives in conducting historical research, artifact dating and identification, among other topics. Workshop participants have an opportunity to visit various research facilities, get behind the scenes tours of facilities and collections, meet and work with professionals, etc. "With a modular structure and a choice of specialized courses, the WUAA/NAS training programs will offer the public at large the chance to directly participate in maritime archaeology, while building a community of skilled volunteers, who will eventually be capable of carrying out their own maritime archaeology research projects" sated Kevin Cullen (WUAA Vice-President and professional archaeologist at the Discovery World museum in Milwaukee.)
