OILED WILDLIFE FREE HAZWOPER TRAINING – for those interested in helping oiled wildlife response efforts in advance of an oil spill

Learn Important Safety Skills

This one-day interactive training will help you understand how to recognize, react, and protect yourself from the hazards associated with an oil spill. The class will cover hazardous situation recognition, personal protective equipment, decontamination procedures, and an overview of how oil spill response operations are conducted.
