Course Description
FMTC's OPITO BOSIET + CA-EBS training course combines the BOSIET course with CA-EBS training, which are both OPITO approved.

The Basic Offshore Safety Induction & Emergency Training (BOSIET) is the basic training for those wishing to work – worldwide – in the Offshore oil and gas industry.

This training is mandatory for all personnel working offshore in the oil and gas industry.

The aim of the BOSIET training course is to introduce delegates to the specific safety issues and regimes relevant to offshore installations, and to equip them with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills for travelling to and from offshore installations by helicopter.

The BOSIET includes practice exercises in fire prevention skills, work safety procedures, helicopter safety, basic medical knowledge and training in survival at sea.

The OPITO approved BOSIET certificate is valid for 4 years. The OPITO approved refresher is the Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET). When you book the FOET, your OPITO approved BOSIET certificate must still be valid (in-date).

The BOSIET training course comprises the following modules:
  • Safety Induction
  • Helicopter Safety and HUET (Helicopter Underwater Escape Training)
  • Sea Survival and First Aid
  • Fire Fighting and Self Rescue

For travelling by helicopter to and from offshore installations in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands, you will also need a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) certificate. It is to be expected that the Danish sector will follow soon.

The aim of the OPITO approved CA-EBS training is to ensure that the delegate gains the required knowledge and understanding of the fundamental differences between a re-breather and compressed air systems, the use of the CA-EBS in helicopter emergency situations and the hazards associated with the use of the CA-EBS. During the course, delegates learn to understand the CA-EBS and how to use the system in a safe and responsible way.

The CA-EBS training course comprises the following key components:
  • Important differences between the re-breather and compressed air systems (technology and use)
  • The hazards and risks associated while using the CA-EBS
  • How to use the CA-EBS in case of an emergency situation
