Two training courses for training ice experts were developed, arranged and delivered in a joint programme between AARI and BP. In 2007 a course for the training of ice experts–ice observers was developed, and the training of three groups of trainees (39 persons) was carried out in 2007 and 2008 at the Arctic and Antarctic Institute (AARI). Subsequently, practical training for two smaller groups of AARI specialists on board icebreaking vessels was completed in 2008 and 2010. In 2009, a course for training ice experts in the interpretation of satellite images of sea ice was developed and delivered to 16 trainees at AARI.
