Maintain your OPITO Certification | Practice CA EBS Use Underwater

ERGT Australia’s OPITO Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET) with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) covers helicopter safety and escape, fire fighting, self rescue and emergency first aid. It also addresses the fundamental differences between re-breather and compressed air systems, the rationale and hazards associated with CA-EBS use and the actions to be taken when conducting pre-flight inspections, donning the lifejacket correctly, buddy checks and emergency deployment in water.

This programme is designed to meet the further offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel working in the offshore oil and gas industry who will be supplied with a CA-EBS during offshore helicopter travel.

Learning Outcomes

The objectives of the FOET with CA-EBS training are the ability of delegates to:

– 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 fire fighting 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.

Please refer to the following OPITO standard for a detailed breakdown of the learning outcomes for this course:


Training Standard Pre-Requisites
The FOET with CA-EBS is open to persons who have a current OPITO-approved BOSIET with CA-EBS, BOSIET with EBS, TBOSIET, FOET with CA-EBS, FOET with EBS or TFOET certificate.

Medical and Health Standards
A current offshore or industry equivalent medical is required for this course. Please refer to the ERGT Medical Form for accepted medicals and requirements.

Additional Information
There is an increased risk of decompression sickness for those who fly at altitude after breathing compressed air underwater. As per the Divers Alert Network (DAN) Revised Flying After Diving Guidelines for Recreational Diving – May 2002, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 12 hours is recommended. Trainees should take this into consideration when arranging for travel after course completion and refer to their company’s Health and Safety department for further advice.

Additional Requirements
Please bring swimwear and a towel for in-water activities. Government-issued photo identification is required for course registration.

Structure and Assessment
This course is delivered through classroom presentations, group discussion and practical components within a simulated workplace environment. Trainees are required to demonstrate their competence through written assessment and practical exercises. Practical exercises include the trainee deploying the CA EBS with both hands, as well as purging and breathing off it whilst underwater. The CA EBS is not used during the Helicopter immersion exercises.

Skills Maintenance
To maintain this certificate it is an OPITO requirement to revalidate every 4 years (FOET or TFOET).

Authority / Regulator
This training is regulated and endorsed by OPITO, which is the global, not-for-profit, skills body for the energy industry.
