TACTICAL COURSE - NEW
This unique course will give you the skills and knowledge to safely and effectively respond to an oil spill in an extreme cold environment.
Taught by our experts in cold weather response, alongside those in Eastern Canada Response Corporation (ECRC - SIMEC), and conducted in an extreme cold weather environment, this course will give you the tangible experience and skills to perform unique response techniques in a unique environment.
The course is delivered with the participation of ECRC, sharing their wealth of knowledge and 20 years experience working in cold climates. OSRL & ECRC are members of the Global Response Network (GRN) which exists to share information, improve spill response performance and provide centres of expertise in spill preparedness, response and recovery techniques.
Is this course for me?
This course is ideal for personnel required to work in extreme cold weather and require additional skills to safely and effectively respond in such environments.
What will I learn?
You will gain knowledge about the behaviour of oil in different cold weather environments as well as the varying characteristics of ice and how this affects response selection. You’ll explore the different response techniques applicable for cold environments and the resources needed to conduct them. This accumulates in practical exercises throughout the course and a scenario-based exercise to conclude the course; giving you the opportunity to practice your skills.
This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
"I thought the course was great overall. Well done to all and special thanks to the instructors and support from ECRC."
"Excellent course – plenty of practical application"
