Workshops

OR&R offers classes and workshops for emergency responders and planners in local, state, and federal governments as well as industry. For example, the three-and-a-half day Science of Oil Spills class focuses on the scientific basis for evaluating environmental risks during spills and making decisions to optimize ecological recovery.

In addition, OR&R offers short workshops (on an as-needed basis) on topics such as computer modeling, chemical dispersant use, or spill response techniques. Whether you deal with oil or chemical spills, you can find an offering that will better prepare you for the many challenges of spills.

Science of Oil Spills (SOS) classes help spill responders increase their understanding of oil spill science when analyzing spills and making risk-based decisions. They are designed for new and mid-level spill responders.

NOAA OR&R offers several levels of training in the aerial observation of oil on water, including a basic online training module for aircrews; an overview during OR&R's SOS class, and a comprehensive (1-day) training for spill responders.

This March, we'll launch our first official Science of Chemical Releases class in Mobile, Alabama.

We're accepting applications until February 19, 2016.

The class will provide a broad, science-based approach to understanding chemical release response.

We have scheduled another Science of Oil Spills (SOS) class for the week of June 6, 2016 in Seattle, Washington.

SOS training helps oil spill responders increase their understanding of oil spill science when analyzing spills and making risk-based decisions.

Science of Chemical Releases (SOCR) classes help spill responders and planners increase their understanding of chemical spill (release) science when analyzing spills and making risk-based decisions. The classes are designed for new and mid-level spill responders.

Each year, thousands of first responders and emergency planners are trained to use programs in the CAMEO software suite in classes led by more than 100 CAMEO-certified instructors.
