Summary

The Nautical Archaeology Society's first course was  held in 1986. Since then over 10,000 people have attended an NAS Training event in over 20 countries. This attendance involved actually meeting an NAS Tutor and discovering what nautical archaeology was all about. In 2013 UK NAS trainees will be able to learn what nautical archaeology is all about from the comfort of their couch. The NAS E'Learning Programme will offer interactive online lessons to replace the face to face lesssons of the basic NAS Training courses. The practical skills will still be taught by "practicums" on real sites that need recording or monitoring. This development project presents new opportunities to reach more people and to concentrate resources on the more logistically complex part of archaeology - the fieldwork. This paper will also present the NAS's plans to offfer E'Learning to its training partners around the world in a variety of languages.
