OPITO training standard Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET). Standard Code 5858

The aim of the FOET: is to provide the delegates with the opportunity to practice and demonstrate emergency response skills which are not possible to practice during drills, exercises and emergency training offshore. 

The objectives of the FOET are that delegates will be able to: 

(a) Demonstrate, in a simulated environment, that they can use the safety equipment and follow procedures in preparing for and during helicopter emergencies – with particular focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching. 

(b) Demonstrate that they can use basic firefighting equipment effectively, and use self-rescue techniques in low visibility and completely obscured visibility situations e.g. smoke filled areas. 

(c) Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid. 

Important: There are physical and mental aspects of this training including training in a water, enclosed spaces, as well activities with fire.

Course includes: additional training in Norwegian Transit Suit & Emergency Breathing System according to North Sea Mutual Acceptance of Basic Safety and Emergency Preparedness Training Memorandum.

When travelling by helicopter to and from offshore installations in the UK and the Netherlands passengers will also need a CA-EBS certificate. It is to be expected that the Danish sector will follow soon.

The Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) Initial Deployment training programme is designed for personnel travelling to or from offshore installations/vessels via helicopter where a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System will be provided for use in the case of an emergency ditching. The Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) Initial Deployment training programme provides the delegate with the knowledge and understanding of the particular hazards and properties of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) and appropriate emergency response actions to take should the requirement for emergency use arise.
