Purpose and Scope of the Workshop
The Worker Education and Training Program's (WETP) spring awardee meeting was held on May 3, 2011. The workshop was held May 4-5, 2011. Both meetings took place at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel in Mobile, Alabama.

This meeting examined the training-related Deepwater Horizon Oil response activities (as seen through the eyes of the Worker Education and Training Program, WETP awardees, federal partners, community-based organizations, workers and other stakeholders) and discussed elements of pre-incident and deployment-phase training for support personnel performing cleanup work. In addition, policies to best ensure that workers receive that training (in a language and a literacy level they understand) before being deployed to work were explored.
