Oil spills that enter a watercourse have the potential to cause very serious and widespread damage to the environment. Having an effective response strategy and properly trained response personnel can greatly enhance a company’s response capability and reduce environmental liability.
The Spill Responder Series is intended for individuals who wish to provide accreditation to their employers and/or clients to indicate that they have the most advanced spill response training available in Western Canada.
Upon the completion of the 5 courses, the student will receive certification in Spill Response Management and be recognized by WCSS as an effective contribution to any spill preparedness and response plan in the upstream oil and gas industry.
Each of the following courses include an exam that requires a minimum pass grade of 70%. Where hands-on learning is part of the curriculum, students will be expected to participate in each aspect and demonstrate competent use of the equipment used.
