Become an effective management team member involved in responding to a UKCS offshore or relevant oil handling facility, and enhance your understanding of response requirements, including the practicalities of oil spill response.
If you have a valid OPEP 3 certification, with your role now requiring you to advise on the spill response strategy, this course is the required level of training to fulfill this UK training requirement.
If you require OPEP 4 certification and currently have a valid OPEP 3 certification, then you can upgrade your certification on this course.
The BEIS Guidance Notes For Preparing Oil Pollution Emergency Plans states that a company must have access to persons competent to OPEP Level 4 (IMO Level 2 equivalent), to advise on the spill response strategy. This upgrade will give you the required to fulfill this UK training requirement.
You will develop on your OPEP Level 3 training course by understanding the response techniques used during an incident. You will conduct practical elements of both a shoreline and an offshore response, by deploying equipment in both scenarios.
During this course, you will cover the following areas:
- Conduct an offshore exercise
- Conduct a shoreline exercise
