Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt in the class will be applied using oil spill management and response simulator. The International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation, 1990 (OPRC) calls for the International Maritime Organization, along with relevant international and regional organisations, oil and shipping industries, to develop a comprehensive training programme in the field of oil pollution preparedness and response including the availability of expertise for the development and implementation of training programmes. In this regard, IMO decided to develop three model training courses aimed at the following:- Level one: First Responders. Level two: Supervisors and On-Scene Commanders. Level three: Administrators and Senior Managers. This IMO Level 1 model course for operational staff ? First Responders on Oil Spill Response and Preparedness ? has been developed and designed to be conducted as an intensive, 3 day course with approximately half of the course time in the form of practical exercises. The course is divided into modules with corresponding exercises (class room, demonstrations or real life practice). This course is designed to provide the knowledge and tools to assist management personnel in the development of oil spill contingency arrangements and to gain the decision-making skills necessary to make immediate and informed decisions during oil spill incidents. Participants will also be provided with a knowledge of the fate and behavior of spilled oil, the impacts that oil has on the marine environment, the vulnerability of various to shoreline types and impact that clean-up operations may have. The course content is designed to be compatible with the IMO OPRC Model Training Course Level 1, for First Responders
