Delegates booking OPITO Helideck Operations Initial Training (HOIT) at AIS Training's sister company Survivex can now get a mandatory e-learning course thrown in for free.

Survivex has created a new HOIT training package which includes a free-of-charge Transportation of Dangerous Goods by Air Awareness e-learning course.

This one-hour course is accepted as the mandatory prerequisite to HOIT and will equip delegates with a basic understanding of the regulations involved in preparing and shipping dangerous goods for transportation by air.

OPITO approved HOIT will equip delegates with the knowledge and skills required to safely and effectively perform the duties of Offshore Helicopter Landing Officer (HLO) and / or Offshore Helideck Assistant (HDA).

Chris Bews, business development manager at Survivex, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer the mandatory Dangerous Goods by Air Awareness e-learning course free-of-charge to any delegate who signs up for OPITO approved HOIT with Survivex. When designing new training packages we look to add maximum value for our delegates and since this particular course is a pre-requisite we wanted to ensure it was included as part of the HOIT training programme.”
