Boom School

What is Inland Waterways Spill Responder Training?

Wakota CAER annually sponsors Inland Waterways Spill Responder Training, the first training course offered in Minnesota for response to oil spills on water. “Boom School” teaches local responders how to contain and recover petroleum on moving water. This training is valuable for individuals who need experience using oil spill response equipment.

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. It is encouraged for attendees to bring their own boat, but Wakota CAER will do their best to make accommodations. If they choose, attendees may use their own equipment during the training. 

The one day training is a watercraft operation/safety course session.
