Presentation Overview:

This two-part webinar training is designed to provide participants with the basic knowledge and understanding necessary to respond to an oil spill incident. Upon completion of the course, the participants have an understanding of:

  • The EPA's statutory and regulatory authority for responding to oil spills;
  • The physical properties of oil;
  • The behavior, effects and fate of oil in aquatic environments;
  • The main tasks an OSC is responsible for during oil spill response;
The webinar does not address oil spill response tactics and field techniques, as this is better suited to a face-to-face or field training. The target audience for this course is new and mid-career OSCs with an interest in learning about oil spill response. Part 2 of this webinar is scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 7, 2013.
