Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Training (SPCC)

Course Name: Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Training (SPCC) 
Duration: 3 hours
Cost: $150

This 3-hour course provides an overview of the SPCC and related pollution and prevention regulations.  Owners or operators of regulated facilities must properly instruct their oil-handling personnel annually in the operation and maintenance of equipment to prevent oil discharge (40 CFR 112). This includes facilities that have an aboveground oil storage capacity of more than 1,320 U.S. gallons or a completely buried oil storage capacity greater than 42,000 U.S. gallons in containers equal to or greater than 55-gallons on site. The definition of oil according to 40 CFR 112.2 is “oil of any kind or in any form, including, but not limited to: fats, oils, or greases of animal, fish, or marine mammal origin; vegetable oils, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits, or kernel’s; and, other oils and greases, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, synthetic oils, mineral oils, oil refuse, or oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil”. This course is designed to satisfy all of the training needs and requirements for companies with SPCCs, and also explores:

  • Oil storage, transfer, and handling equipment on site, including secondary containment structures
  • Secondary containment failures and what conditions require a spill report
  • Security measures on site and description of potentially suspicious situations
  • Discharge procedure protocols and expectations of first responder actions
