The Colorado Springs Fire Department is hosting a Humminbird Sonar Technician class in Colorado Springs, CO this June 14-15, 2017. Download the program flyer for more information: Colorado Springs, CO Program Flyer
This program was developed for Law Enforcement, Fire, and Marine Rescue teams who utilize Humminbird sonar. These cost effective systems can provide First Responders with an affordable solution for underwater search operations.
The system features the same style imagery as traditional side scan sonar systems and requires many of the same image interpretation skills required for towed sonar systems. This program will guide you through the setup, usage, and limitations of the side imaging sonars.
The program also provides imagery of drowning victims and victim surrogates for comprehensive training. This program will inexpensively let you get the most from of your Humminbird® system.
The course is led by senior instructor Vincent Capone. Vincent has over 30 years sonar experience, and is a sonar subject expert instructor for the US Navy. He has trained law enforcement groups such as Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Hennipen County Sheriff’s Office, Suffolk County Marine Police and many more.
