RPI offers a range of courses on oil spill planning and response issues, as well as natural resource damage assessment. All of our courses include field exercises (which are always cited as being the best part of the course) with emphasis on the interdisciplinary components of coastal habitats, protection strategies, and cleanup methods. We customize each course to meet the needs of the participants. In 2012, RPI worked with NOAA to develop standard training curriculum for SCAT Team Members and SCAT Coordinator/Team Leader.
