Training and awareness are essential part of an efficient and safe response capability. To meet your training programme objectives, OTRA proposes a set of training courses in line with international guidelines (IMO – IPIECA – IOGP) and operational feedbacks from previous emergency events to ensure that personnel involved in the response will:

  • Enhance / reinforce your knowledge
  • Be able to assume specific emergency response positions and improve related skills
  • Develop proper position-related attitudes in the Incident Command Post and on site
  • Be able to face challenges and facilitate organisational response strategies and tactics changes depending on emergency evolution
  • Ensure Health and Safety of all operations will be anticipated whatever the location

All courses can be run in English, French and Portuguese.
