OPITO Offshore Training Courses


The OPITO approved BOSIET training course, comprising both CA-EBS (Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System) and EBS elements, provides delegates with a range of knowledge and skills relevant to travelling offshore by helicopter and working offshore. The course covers 4 main areas: 

•    Safety Induction
•    Firefighting and Self Rescue
•    Sea Survival with First Aid

This course has been specifically designed to meet the Aviation Regulation requirements the UK / North Sea and Internationally.

This type of training is also referred to as 'The RGIT' which refers to The Robert Gordon Institute of Technology where it began.

The BOSIET course should be taken by delegates looking to enter the offshore market for the first time, or those delegates whose previous safety training has lapsed beyond the refresher date of every 4 years
