The FOET with Emergency Breathing (EBS), is a 1 Day course and is OPITO approved.
This course will give delegates the opportunity to practice and demonstrate emergency response skills which are not possible to practice during offshore drills, exercises and emergency training.
This course is a mix of theoretical and practical sessions, during which delegates will be required to demonstrate their level of knowledge and understanding of the training programme content.
Revalidation - The FOET is valid for a 4 year period.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Under OPITO regulations, delegates MUST complete this course before your previous BOSIET or FOET certificate expires.
Delegates will be required to produce one of the three certificates outlined below:
Produce a valid, unexpired offshore medical certificate confirming the delegates fitness for offshore work.
A valid, unexpired, medical certificate of fitness to work at sea.
A self declaration of fitness to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training.
On the date on which the delegate is to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training, and prior to entering the water in which the training takes place, the delegate gives to the OPITO-approved Centre a statement, that to the best of the delegates knowledge and belief, the delegate has no (current or past) medical condition which makes the delegate unfit to participate in the training.
