OPITO combined FOET includes Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET) with Emergency Breathing System (EBS) and Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS).

  • 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
  • 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
  • Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid
  • Demonstrate the use of Compressed Air - Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) and Emergency Breathing System (EBS)
