Full Description:

This 1 day training programme is designed to meet the initial offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new (or returning) to the offshore oil and gas industry who will be supplied with a compressed air emergency breathing system (CA-EBS) during offshore helicopter travel and who choose to complete the underpinning knowledge of the BOSIET programme via the BOSIET (with CA-EBS) on-line programme prior to attending an OPITO approved training centre to be formally assessed against all learning outcomes.The objectives of the BOSIET (with CA-EBS) Training are that delegates will be able to:

(a) Identify the generic hazards which are specific to offshore oil and gas installations, potential risks associated with those hazards, and how controls are put in place to eliminate or reduce risks.

(b) Identify key offshore related safety regulations and explain the basic safety management concepts

(c) 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

(d) Demonstrate sea survival and first aid techniques

(e) Demonstrate that they can effectively use basic firefighting equipment, and practise self-rescue techniques in low visibility situations, to include smoke filled areas.

Delegates will complete a formal assessment against all learning outcomes.

Evidence of successful completion of on-line modules.

On arrival delegates will be required to undertake a Module 1 written test (duration: 30 minutes) as a method of checking that they have met all the Module 1 learning outcomes. The test will be “open-book” . All Module 1 learning outcomes must be achieved during the written test.

Training and/or assessment activities that you will be required to undertake may include physically demanding and potentially stressful elements. All personnel who participate in such activities must be physically and mentally capable of participating fully, therefore a medical questionnaire will be issued to each delegate at registration.


N.B. - Please be in the Reception area of the NMCI by 8.45 am. The course will finish at approximately 5:30 pm each day. There is free car parking facilities to the front of the NMCI.


The BOSIET CAEBS, FOET CAEBS & HUET CAEBS standards have changed.

There will now be shallow water CAEBS training incorporated into the course.

Delegates will be required to produce one of the three certificates outlined below:-

Produce a valid, unexpired Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) offshore medical certificate confirming the delegate’s fitness for offshore work.


A valid, unexpired, medical certificate of fitness to work at sea.


A valid, unexpired offshore medical certificate issued by a body outside of the UK which is recognised as equivalent to the OGUK medical certificate of fitness for offshore work.

In addition to the above the delegate will be required to produce:-

A certificate of fitness to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training issued by a registered OGUK examining doctor.


In the case of a Seafarers Medical with restrictions, produce a statement from an appropriate registered practitioner that the restriction or condition does not result from a respiratory or ENT condition and there is no absolute contraindication to the shallow water delegate’s participation in the training.


On the date on which the delegate is to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training, and prior to entering the water in which the training takes place, the delegate gives to the OPITO-approved Centre a statement, that to the best of the delegate’s knowledge and belief, the delegate has no (current or past) medical condition which makes the delegate unfit to participate in the training.

You can book an OGUK medical and undertake the examination to obtain an OGUK medical together with the certificate to undertake shallow water CA-EBS Training by contacting Corporate Health, contact details below.
