National Plan training
AMSA delivers competency-based training courses under the National Plan and intergovernmental arrangements, as well as online training and workshops.
Competency-based training courses
The National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies is a cooperative arrangement involving the:
- Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA)
- States and Northern Territory
- petroleum, chemical and shipping industries.
The National Plan aims to maximise Australia’s marine pollution response capabilities.
Online Learning - AMSA Learning Centre
Introduction to Pollution Response consists of four Modules:
- The National Plan
- Health and Safety in an Oil Spill
- Introduction to Oil Spills
- Introduction to Chemical Spills
These modules are available to everyone.
There is no cost or timeframe for completion, with one exception.
Participants attending any AMSA National Plan management training are required to complete these four modules as they underpin learning.
The Modules should take approximately four hours in total and must be completed prior to attending.
Modules can be accessed from the AMSA Learning Centre.
A Certificate of Completion will be forwarded once you have successfully completed the modules.
Organisations interested in training personnel to provide assistance in a marine incident are encouraged to take advantage of the courses offered by various National Plan organisations.
If you or personnel in your organisation are interested in participating in any of the courses offered please contact the relevant training coordinator for further details.
