Classroom and Field Sessions.
A combination of classroom and field sessions usually form the basis for practical, hands-on training. Participants learn about the properties of substances that might be released, the sources, causes and impacts of spills and the means to PREVENT the occurrence of releases. Alerting, notification, reporting, and organizational structures are also addressed. The information reviewed on countermeasures is based on realistic expectations. Counterspil strives to keep learning what technologies work and what improvements are available to result in improved countermeasures. To this end, suppliers and manufacturers are visited and questioned in detail about the products they market.
