Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System

How to Use The Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System

ERGT Australia’s Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA EBS) course covers the fundamental differences between re-breather and compressed air systems, the rationale and hazards associated with compressed air emergency breathing systems and the actions to be taken when conducting pre-flight inspections, donning the lifejacket correctly, buddy checks and emergency deployment in a dry environment.

Personnel who work offshore and are required to carry a CA EBS when flying will need this training.
