There are no entry requirements.  

However, if working offshore, it is expected that this programme will be taken after the OPITO approved BOSIET course so Centres can build on knowledge previously attained. However, if this is not the case then the BOSIET course will be required prior to travelling offshore and the learner will receive some reinforcement of knowledge previously gained.  

There are no specific medical requirements, although personnel must have a current offshore medical certificate before being allowed to work offshore.  No offshore medical certificate is required before OPITO MIST.

Shoulder Width Measurement

0.25 Day

From £35.00

Guidelines recommend that all passengers traveling to North Sea Installations should find a seat near a Push-out emergency exit window that suits their body size comfortably. This assessment can be made using a helicopter Bideltoid measurement service, commonly known as shoulder width measurement.

As part of these regulations, all helicopter passengers are kindly asked to undergo a shoulder width measurement conducted by specially trained trainers and medics. If a passenger's shoulder width exceeds 55.9cm (22 inches), they will be considered extra broad (XBR) and are encouraged to sit in a helicopter seat next to a window that accommodates their shoulder size.

For passengers with a shoulder width of 55.9cm or less, they will be classified as regular.

Once completed, candidates will be issued with a Shoulder Width Measurement certificate.
