OSC 201 is an intermediate-level training course that expands on the Removal Process course to prepare On-Scene Coordinators (OSC) for the rigors of everyday removal action site activities. The instructional methodology will include a response case study to provide participants an opportunity to apply the skills learned during the course. By taking the course, participants will achieve the following objectives:
Understand how to apply a Removal Site Strategy Model to a project. The course reviews this effective conceptual tool in managing the factors that influence the cleanup at a removal site.
Learn project management skills, including organization of a project, forecasting resources and personnel, planning meetings, documenting site activities and tracking schedules and costs. The course prepares OSCs for the daily challenges they will encounter during a removal action and an emergency response.
Learn to navigate through the daily tasks of the removal process and adapt to changing site circumstances. The course includes a response case study to provide participants an opportunity to apply the skills learned during the course.
Understand the keys to conducting a removal action that is consistent with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The course takes a hands-on practitioner's approach to removal and emergency response management, based on the perspective of field operations, and focuses on attaining the response action goals.
OSC 201 is a 2-day training course designed for OSCs with one to two years of experience, particularly in the field at removal actions and who may have assisted other OSCs with removal actions or are now preparing to take the lead in conducting a large-scale removal action. More experienced OSCs may find the course useful as a refresher and an opportunity to share success stories and lesson learned with newer OSCs. Other EPA removal program personnel (including Headquarters regional coordinators, enforcement personnel, Removal Managers and Special Team members) are also welcome to attend. THIS COURSE IS NOT OPEN TO OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES, STATES, TRIBES, ACADEMIA, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS OR OTHER PRIVATE ENTITIES. The Removal Process course is a prerequisite for EPA employees who would like to attend OSC 201.
*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
