Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET OPITO)

Aims

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

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

  3. Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid
