OPITO Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) Digital Delivery 5752
ONLINE & PRACTICAL DIGITAL BOSIET with CA-EBS Practice Underwater
Delivered via blended learning (online theory plus practical’s at ERGT), this training course is for new or returning personnel to the offshore oil and gas industry, working in cold water and tropical environments.
It addresses offshore-speciﬁc safety induction information, helicopter safety and escape, sea-survival and ﬁrst aid, ﬁre ﬁghting and self-rescue, and the principles of emergency breathing systems used, with specific reference to the compressed air emergency breathing system (CA-EBS).
The digital self paced training component is delivered through OPITO’s online learning portal and can be conveniently completed in the comfort of you home or office. It requires a device with internet connection and likely to take approx. 8 hours to complete. ERGT will register each trainee for this component.
Trainees are able to stop, restart and repeat content as required. Knowledge developed here will be assessed via written assessment on the day of practical training.
The practical training component is delivered at an ERGT training centre, only after completion of online learning. The trainee will convert the theoretical knowledge gained through the online learning modules, into practical skills and then assessed in a simulated workplace environment.
Trainees must attend and complete the practical training within 90 days of completing the online learning.
