The second level in the NAS curriculum is the NAS 1. It is a two day course which includes topics such as: area search and survey; 3-D survey technique; safety and logistics; handling artifacts; and a case study. Half a day is devoted to survey practice in open-water (divers) or on the foreshore (non-divers). A few hours are spent plotting up the results. This is a very good preparation for anyone wishing to take part in UASBC projects, and in fact priority is often given to people who have taken NAS 1.
