Ugh... what a total joke that was.
ALL training is performed on the site if you get called. The "class" that I just got back from was nothing more than a 4 hour presentation on work safety (it's actually supposed to be 6 hours).
Essentially BP has you take this class so that they can say;
"If you help at the site of a spill and do something to hurt yourself then you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT blame us for it."
The safety lessons were mind numbing. The presenter basically just repeated what was written on each slide and repeated the same basic points over and over again.
Here is an actual question from the test that you have to pass to be qualified to volunteer at a clean up site;
True or False?
Weathered Oil is very sticky.
I shit you not.
The entire class could have been an hour and a half, and that's including introductions, breaks and the test.
