We developed an active-learning programme to provide the global Mutual Response Team with an increased understanding of oil spill response strategies, exploring how and when different response techniques are used.
The 1.5 day training programme was driven by interactive scenarios that immersed participants in activities reflecting the issues and challenges of an incident.
Each stage of a response strategy was brought to life using a variety of learning techniques and different media (including cards, photos, sketches, maps, posters and videos). Participants worked through materials to develop their response strategy and identify relevant response techniques as the scenario evolved.
100% of participants have scored the programme 4 or 5 out of 5. It has already been run in 17 locations and with over 300 people.
This IMO Level 2 Course has also been accredited by The Nautical Institute and Maritime & Coastguard Agency.
We are continuing to work with BP to tailor the programme to extend its reach and engage different audiences and business functions within BP.
