Oil Spill Response Strategies & Tactics Training

Training at Ohmsett takes the learning from the classroom, to the 2.6 million gallon wave/tow tank. That’s where students receive hands-on training with the latest spill response equipment and techniques used in the field.

With the emphasis on practical experience in full-scale oil recovery operations in the Ohmsett tank, you can increase your proficiency using boom and skimmers while practicing removing spilled oil. The combined classroom/tank exercise training provides response teams the skills to work more safely, operate more effectively, and make better decisions in the field.

The course is presented in partnership with Texas A&M National Spill Control School (NSCS). At the completion of the course, students receive a NSCS Certificate of Completion.
