The development of instructional material for operators of marine oilspill countermeasures equipment is decribed. The purpose of the material was to facilitate the recall of procedural tasks initially learned in courses offered by the Oilspill Countermeasures Training Unit in St. John’s, Newfoundland. -- Once the need for new material was demonstrated, the audience characteristics and tasks were analyzed. A printed manual was selected as the most appropriate medium. A Preliminary Version was produced, which was evaluated by content and audience specialists, and a sample of the target audience. It was also reviewed by the manufacturers of the equipment. Subsequently a final 1981 Edition was produced. -- A panel of experts rated the final version good to excellent. Pilot testing indicated that after extended periods of no practice or exposure to the specialized equipment, target audience representatives could successfully answer questions on operating procedures through reference to the manual. The continued use of the manual was recommended.
