  • Personnel responsible for shoreline assessments and environmental sensitivity considerations
  • Operational staff responsible for setting shoreline response priorities and tactics
  • Individuals involved with SCAT data management who require a better understanding of the SCAT process.


What will I learn?

This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:

  • Awareness of site assessment and set-up, shoreline types, environmental issues, response strategies, equipment and site waste management
  • Hands-on equipment experience to:
    • organise the resources safely and efficiently at the spill site
