vSCAT: Virtual Shoreline Cleanup and Assessment Technique
Training in SCAT (Shoreline Cleanup and Assessment Technique) is conducted throughout the country for specific audiences in the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and state governments.
These training events are not offered on a set schedule, and are not available to the general public. This virtual SCAT training is restricted to members of the USCG Pacific Strike Team and USCG Units in Districts 11, 13, 14, and 17.
SCAT classes are coordinated through OR&R's regional Scientific Support Coordinators (SSCs), who are co-located with the U.S. Coast Guard District Offices around the country. If you are a spill responder/planner who is interested in SCAT training, your NOAA SSC is the best source of information for SCAT training events in your region. You can find contact information for SSCs on the OR&R Field Staff page.
