What does Boom School cover?
Industry and regulatory personnel with experience responding to oil spills on water instruct the course, which includes a combination of classroom and hands-on instruction. Wakota CAER members provide the boats and booming equipment. If they choose, attendees may use their own equipment during the training.
The first day is dedicated to a watercraft operation/safety course geared toward boat operators which is recommended but not mandatory which will be followed by two and a half days of inland waterway spill responder training
Lunch and snacks are provided each day.
