AVI UEBS – Aviation Utilise Emergency Breathing System

The purpose of ERGT Australia’s Utilise Emergency Breathing System for the Aviation Industry (AVI UEBS) course is to provide personnel with the skills and knowledge to utilise an EBS. This training is applicable across the Australian aviation industry in a variety of contexts including recreational and commercial operations.

Personnel undertaking this training are typically employed by companies who provide helicopter services that fly over water. They will require aircrew and/or passengers to be trained in how to survive in the event of a downed aircraft. These aircraft movements are inherently hazardous and aircrew and their passengers are at risk particularly flying over water in all weather and climatic conditions.
