An intensive, hands-on oil spill workshop. Our Fall Workshop was designed for spill responders who desire in-depth river booming and oil skimmer training. The three-day workshop begins with a full day of classroom orientation at Elastec in Carmi followed by two rigorous booming and skimmer deployment days on the Wabash River in New Harmony, Indiana. The FALL WORKSHOP qualifies as an 8-hour Hazwoper refresher course.
The price of the Fall Workshop 2021 is $1,250.00 and includes all workshop events, training and lunches. Travel and lodging are additional. First priority will be given to paid registrants as space is limited.
This year’s instructor will be Cody Harris of Whitewater Rescue Institute.
Cody Harris is President and Co-Founder of the Whitewater Rescue Institute and WRI Environmental Response. He has 28 years of experience working on rivers as a search and rescue team member, river guide, kayak instructor, emergency medical technician, technical rescue instructor and environmental emergency responder.
Since 2009, Cody has responded to numerous inland oil spills, where he and his team have assisted in the safe transport of workers via jet boat, developed safety plans for on water operations, and deployed containment boom for oil recovery.
In addition, Cody has developed curriculum and training guidelines for Swiftwater Spill Response trainings for Oil Spill Response Organizations (OSROs). He has developed Geographic Response Plans for clients and conducted multiple functional exercises and equipment drills on fast water locations.
Note: The Safety and wellbeing of all the participants in the Elastec Workshops is very important to us. Course schedules, and possibly workshop dates can change if we feel the safety of our participants is compromised due to river flooding, weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Please plan your itineraries accordingly.
