Each time an oil spill occurs, it has a significant impact on the maritime environment and on the nearby coastlines. The marine and coastal ecosystems are detrimentally affected, and economic consequences are enormous.
This makes it essential to have a well functioning and well trained European oil spill expertise based on cooperation among European maritime member countries.
The challenge has been to develop new tools and facilities in the process of improving local and international capability in responding to oil spills in marine environments.
This tool was found in the former CMS 2 project result, where an interactive web Home Pages training course was developed.
CMS will fully implement and disseminate these former results into a full web Home Page based marine rescue training system including e-learning modules for those who usually participate de facto in responding to incidents of oil spill at sea.
CMS offers an innovative ICT-based web Home Pages learning system on a high pedagogical
