24-Hour Oil Spill Response for Alaska Native Villages

Course Description:
This course is offered onsite at various Alaska Native Villages. Each course is tailored to the area where it is being offered. However, each course does include first response training and emergency response planning for other hazardous materials in the region and 8-hour refresher training for those that have current 40-hour HAZWOPER certification. Additional course content is determined by the specific needs of the communities.

Participant Eligibility:
This course is typically given to personnel that act as first responders to hazardous substance releases in their community. As such, persons with previous Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training are encouraged to attend. However, this response course requires no pre-requisite training and is open to all. Although preference will be given to tribal members in close proximity to the host village, all community leaders and other decision makers in Alaska Native Villages who are developing response programs or want to become first responders are welcome to apply.

Course Fees:
There are no fees for this course. Participants are responsible for their own travel costs, lodging, and per diem expenses.
