Course details

This course covers both the strategic and tactical elements of oil spill response, it is a perfect alternative to attending the accredited On-Scene Commanders Course when travel or budget is restricted. 

It will cover all the On-Scene Commander theory modules, but as it is delivered remotely there are no practical deployments of equipment (can be covered separately – see Certification below). 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 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). 

  • Personnel required to operate within an or Emergency Response Team, including site safety positions 
  • Operational staff responsible for setting strategic and tactical priorities and those required to conduct response tactics 
  • On-scene Commanders 
  • Planning staff with an environmental remit
