OPITO T-HUET (Tropical Helicopter Underwater Escape Training)
The OPITO-approved Tropical Helicopter Underwater Escape Training course is designed for personnel traveling to offshore installations/vessels via helicopter in a tropical environment.
This course provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge in emergency response related to helicopter evacuation and escape from a ditched/capsized helicopter using personal safety equipment.
The Standard: The OPITO standards are a set of training and/or competence standards, produced and agreed by the offshore oil and gas industry covering a variety of offshore emergency response duties and occupational roles.
This course is accepted in most tropical regions of the world where oil and gas industries operate.
Aim: The aim of the Tropical HUET training program is to prepare students 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.
