A number of shipboard training programmes have been supported by NF-POGO since 2015.

These have included transects along the North South Atlantic Transect (NoSoAT), a cruise to the Porcupine Abyssal Plain (PAP) Sustained Observatory and will also include the Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) cruise and the FRidge cruise, which is the UK contribution to GEOTRACES.
