OPITO Offshore Emergency Response Team Leader (OERTL)

3 days

This course is for personnel who are appointed to, or to be appointed to, the role of an Offshore Emergency Response Team Leader. The oil and gas industry recognises that a major objective is to prevent incidents occurring, and if they do occur to control them and minimise their effect. It is important therefore to set common standards in emergency response and to ensure that they are maintained. Before personnel can be assessed against the standards they will require the knowledge and skills to enable them to carry out the emergency response tasks involved. They will require emergency response training and practice before being assessed.
