The Tropical HUET training programme will prepare delegates that intend to travel to and from offshore oil and gas installations and vessels by helicopter in a tropical environment by providing specific training in pre-flight and in-flight requirements and to equip delegates with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills required in the event of a helicopter emergency – with specific focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching and sea survival techniques.
The additional Emergency Breathing System (EBS) training is to complement T-HUET for personnel travelling to an offshore oil and gas installation by helicopter (in a warm water tropical environment) when issued with an Emergency Breathing System (EBS).
General Course Objectives:
The objectives of the T-HUET with EBS Training are that delegates will be able 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 sea survival techniques.
- Ensure delegates are familiar with the use of the Emergency Breathing System (EBS).
- Ensure that delegates understand the basic emergency response during a helicopter emergency using the EBS.
