OPITO – BOSIET with CA-EBS & MIST (5 Day Package)

5 Days

From £450.00

MIST constitutes a comprehensive marine training program that introduces newcomers to the fundamental safety aspects of the offshore oil & gas sector. It nurtures an understanding of potential hazards and the corresponding safety measures that individuals may encounter while working offshore. Each module is meticulously crafted to draw learners' attention to their individual safety responsibilities, thereby influencing their behavior and outlook toward colleagues, the facility, and the surroundings.

As for BOSIET with CA-EBS, it is structured to fulfill the initial safety and emergency response training prerequisites for individuals who are new to, or rejoining, the offshore oil and gas industry. This marine training is particularly essential for those who will receive a compressed air emergency breathing system (CA-EBS) for use during helicopter travel to offshore locations.

OPITO

On successful completion of the course, delegates will be provided with an OPITO Approved certificate which is valid for 4 years.

Training activities contained within this course may include physically demanding and potentially stressful elements. All personnel who participate in such activities must be capable of participating fully.

OPITO-approved training centres are required to ensure that prior to participating in in-water CA-EBS practical exercises the learner: Please see prerequisites below

a) Possesses a valid, unexpired Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) offshore medical certificate confirming the learner’s fitness for offshore work* OR possesses a valid, unexpired offshore medical certificate issued by a body outside of the UK which is recognised as equivalent to the OGUK medical certificate of fitness for offshore work* OR possesses a valid, unexpired, medical certificate of fitness to work at sea*, AND

b) Possesses a certificate of fitness to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training issued by a registered OGUK examining doctor*, OR, where the medical fitness certificate for work at sea includes a restriction or is subject to conditions, possesses a statement from an appropriately registered practitioner that the restriction or condition does not result from a respiratory or ENT condition and there is no absolute contraindication to the shallow water learner’s participation in the training*, AND

c) On the date on which the learner is to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training, and prior to entering the water in which the training takes place, the learner gives to the OPITO-approved Centre a statement, that to the best of the learner’s knowledge and belief, the learner has no (current or past) medical condition which makes the learner unfit to participate in the training. Learners must not participate in Additional CA-EBS Training (In-Water) practical exercises if they are unable to meet the requirements of a) b) and c) above.
