About 90 workers from the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries are taking oil cleanup classes in Baton Rouge.  The classes teach safety procedures for cleaning  oiled animals and removing beach debris.  Workers must pass a test to take part in the oil spill response.

Crews must wear safety clothing, but do not have to wear breathing gear.  Authorities say breathing the air near the oil slick is not a safety concern.
