This is the fourth module of the world recognized Seagull computer based training program. It is devoted to the SOPEP. According to the first annex to the MARPOL convention, having and maintaining on board is a mandatory requirement for the majority of the ships. The module is intended to provide trainees with a fundamental technical understanding of all relevant national and international laws and regulations concerning oil pollution.
The main content of the training course is arranged in five major parts. The first part is dealing directly with the laws while the second part will give information of their applicability. The third part of the course addresses cop-ordination and reporting procedures to follow. The fourth part focuses on the oil pollution prevention and mitigation of the potential oil spills. The closing part provides miscellaneous information not falling under any of the titles above.
The target groups for the present course would include management, operational and support deck, engine and electric personnel. Highly recommended for the formal onboard training as well as for the self-education and classroom training as it covers absolutely everything you would need to know about SOPEP.
