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 2023 is $1,375.00 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.
