Practice deploying equipment needed during a first response along with enhancing your understanding of how the environment influences the behaviour of spilled oil, which in turn affects response priorities.

This one-day course, which includes classroom and hands-on activities, is ideal for tactical response teams of oil terminals, ports and harbours who will be the first responders during an oil spill incident in their facilities. The main objective of the course is to familiarise the team members of the different tools and equipment used during a first response and for them to be able to experience deploying these in a safe and efficient manner.
