OPITO Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) Initial Deployment Training
The use of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) was approved for offshore passenger travel in July 2014 and is now a mandatory requirement for offshore workers.
OPITO training standards for BOSIET, HUET and FOET now also include in-water CA-EBS training exercises.
OPITO Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) Initial Deployment training covers the particular hazards and properties of a CA-EBS.
The course includes explanations and demonstrations of CA-EBS which will be followed by practical exercises that demonstrate appropriate emergency response actions to take should the requirement for emergency deployment arise.
Delegates will be observed demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of the equipment and emergency response skills and take part in a multiple choice written test.

- Understand the fundamental differences between rebreather and compressed air systems (technology and use)
