MARPOL Training, Campbell Transportation: Training Software for Inland Vessels

Thursday, June 23, 2011

MARPOL Training Institute, a California-based training and consulting company specializing in computer-based software for maritime pollution abatement, and Campbell Transportation Company, a marine transportation company committed to safe and environmentally sound operating practices and procedures, has developed an inland version of NPDES Training for Vessel Crewmembers (NTV). This comprehensive computer-based training software package, called INTV, covers the US EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Vessel General Permit (VGP) for discharges incidental to the normal operation of commercial vessels and complies with the Best Management Practices for Towing Vessels & Barges developed by the American Waterways Operators. The easy-to-use interactive program, available as software for installation on a computer or access online, has a crew track and an officer track covering both regulations and reporting requirements and includes a link to state specific requirements. The INTV program allows crew and officers to work at their own pace, print a Certificate of Completion, and the software provides an auditable database record for the company. As of February 26, 2009, all commercial vessels over 79-feet in length operating in U.S. inland and coastal waters must comply with a set of requirements that apply to 26 types of vessel discharges.
