"Deployment exercise very enjoyable and good practical demonstration of use of spill response equipment."
"All facilitators were technically very good as subject experts. These came through from the way experiences were shared, how exercises were handled and clarity in their presentations."
"There was a variety of equipment - skimmer, booms – available and very valuable discussion on deployment. Good practical hands on experience."
"Able to learn different strategies on a cleanup operations, eg high volume low pressure washing on shoreline & setting up the cleanup operation by different zones. Improved my understanding especially on different equipment available & how it will be efficiently used."
"It is important that shoreline cleanup, waste management & dispersants are being taught as they are all important in oil spill response. The offshore boom deployment exercise was an eye opener. It is great that we get the chance to be hands-on in the deployment of the offshore boom."
