Oil Spill Response & Control

This course covers Oil Spill Response and Control Programs in the Oil & Gas Sector. It is an intense classroom-only course that teaches a system of pre-spill readiness, spill response drills; Incident Command System (ICS); and post-spill reaction planning, strategy, and tactics. The content taught is based on the global standard-setting U.S. FEMA Incident Command System (ICS).

The course covers a technical aspects-overview of oil spill response equipment; the behavior of oil in the marine environment; and spill trajectory and tracking modeling. The course is designed to teach oil-spill crisis communications considerations and prepares a student to take online tests to certify progress toward Incident Commander in the FEMA ICS.

The course is designed for Managers who need to assess the readiness of their organization for an Oil Spill Response; Members of the Oil Spill Emergency Response Teams (either as oil-contact field staff or office-based support staff).

Successful completion of this course results in a Certificate from the Marine Survival Training Center of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, as well as the NExT Certification.

This course is available in English and Latin American Spanish.
