AMOSC is delighted to announce that we are now offering revalidation courses in:
Revalidation Course in Oil Spill Response Management (IMO II)
Revalidation Course in Oil Spill Response Command and Control (IMO III)
Conducted in a competency-based learning environment, the two day revalidation courses are designed to refresh the essential skills and knowledge for personnel who have previously completed AMOSC's IMO II and III courses.
Successful completion ensures the currency and validity of oil spill response management and command skills. This is in accordance with AMOSC's International Maritime Organisation (IMO) accreditation framework and extends original certification by a further 3 years.

The Incident Command System is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazards incident management approach. It is designed to be extremely flexible and can be used for incidents of any size, scope and complexity. The ICS 300 course is intended for both industry & private-sector personnel who may be responsible for, or involved in, managing a major incident. It is ideally suited to those with management experience involving high level decision-making and/or personnel with extensive co-ordination experience in oil spill response.
This course has been internationalized from its origins in US government and made relevant to the oil industry. It focuses on the critical aspects of roles & responsibilities within a response and allows development of further skills. For further details and to book, please visit the training page.
