Course Overview:

It has been identified through collaboration between the Offshore Oil and Gas and Maritime Industries that there are several corresponding areas of training between the STCW95/2010 Basic Safety Training and the OPITO BOSIET with CA-EBS.

In order to allow employees who currently work within the Maritime industry, and hold the necessary safety certificates, to transfer or also work within areas deemed to be within the Offshore Oil and Gas sector, this package has been developed to avoid unnecessary duplication of initial basic survival training content.

PLEASE NOTE – This package deal includes the following elements:

  • BOSIET with CA-EBS (STCW 95 / 2010 Conversion)
  • MIST (Minimum Industry Safety Training)
  • Shoulder Width Measurement

For those already in possession of a MIST certificate – which is a prerequisite for the BOSIET with CA-EBS (STCW 95 / 2010 Conversion) element – CTS offers a standalone version of the practical training:

This Maritime to Offshore Conversion Package covers the following areas:
