It is expected that all employees will have received immediate response training in-house. Beyond that however, in-house training will depend on the size and resources of the contractor and on his past experience in responding to spills. The assessor will accept within the accreditation scheme process the capacity of the applicant to carry out in-house training but, external training for key personnel is essential.
For marine spills it is a requirement that staff will have a current training certificate to the appropriate IMO or MCA standard provided by an accredited Nautical Institute trainer. For inland spills external training requirements will vary depending on the nature of the contractor and on the services he seeks to offer. Advice on suitable training courses and course providers may be obtained from the Scheme Assessor.
