Designed for remote delivery this On-Scene Commander’s Course covers both the strategic and tactical elements of oil spill response.
It will cover all the On-Scene Commander theory modules, but as it is delivered remotely there are no practical deployments of equipment. However, to keep the delegates engaged there are many interactive tasks designed that can be completed as individuals, or as a team to build competence.
This open course has been developed for delegates working anywhere around the globe and is therefore generic in content. It will include a Desktop Exercise based on a scenario challenging the delegates to plan a tactical response whilst considering Safety, Environmental, and Operational issues. However, this course can be tailored for client’s who wish to have a course specific to their operation and/or area, such a course would be built based around the clients Oil Spill Contingency Plan.
The course can be run over a duration of 4 days with hours to suit the client.
Is this course for me?
There is no requirement for previous oil spill response experience to attend this course, although it would benefit those who have field experience and perhaps attended the Operators Course in the past (IMO 1 equivalent).
What will I learn?
The On-Scene Commander’s responsibility is to manage a tactical response based on the guidance provided by Management Team. In doing so Safety is the # 1 priority followed by protection of the Environment and Socio-Economic resources. This course will cover all of the topics required to give the delegate the necessary knowledge.
This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
24 hours delivery time - 4 days @ 6 hours
Preferred IT Platform:
The Microsoft Teams training software is preferred, however, if it is not available to use please contact us to discuss other platforms.
