​​Background Information

Advanced decontamination is a unique in-person course offered to Level 3 Trainers and Level 2 WID Professionals. This course is focused on safe and effective decontamination of the advanced systems and components of very complex watercraft. New technologies are evolving, and it’s important that consistent decontamination methods are being implemented to prevent the transportation of aquatic invasive species over land via recreational watercraft.


This team-based course is grounded in boat anatomy, form, and function. Participants should be prepared to perform a full decontamination according to the standard WRP decontamination procedures included in the WID Manual.

The training will cover the following topics:

  • Reasons for Decontamination

  • Step-By-Step Decontamination Protocols and Procedures

  • Decontamination Practice and Demonstrated Knowledge 

    • Advanced knowledge of propulsion systems.

    • Gained experience with very complex watercraft systems and components.

    • Practice and understanding of how to effectively flush systems and components, methodology, and connecting attachment tools.

  • Decontamination Units

    • Recommended specifications for decontamination units.

    • Routine maintenance and standard operating procedures.

    • Trouble-shooting challenges during decontamination. 

  • Decontamination of a very complex watercraft

    • If available, a mussel-fouled watercraft may be included.

​This course is open to individuals who have previously completed a WID Level 2 or Level 3 class.
