Tropical Further Offshore Emergency Training – OPITO Approved

Target Group for T- FOET

This programme is designed to meet the further offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel working in the offshore oil and gas industry in a tropical environment. 

Aims and Objectives of T- FOET

The aim of the T-FOET is to provide the delegates with the opportunity to practise and demonstrate emergency response skills which are not possible to practise during drills, exercises and emergency training offshore.

The objectives of the T-FOET are that delegates will be able to: 

  • Demonstrate, in a simulated environment, that they can use the safety equipment and follow procedures in preparing for and during helicopter emergencies – with particular focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching.
  • Demonstrate that they can use basic firefighting equipment effectively, and use self-rescue techniques in low visibility and completely obscured visibility situations e.g. smoke filled areas.
  • Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid.

Delegate Pre-requisites for Tropical FOET

The T-FOET is open to persons who have a valid (in-date) OPITO-approved BOSIET, BOSIET (with CAEBS), TBOSIET, FOET, FOET (with CA-EBS) or TFOET certificate.

Duration and Timing of Tropical FOET

Lym Consults conducts the OPITO approved Tropical FOET programme for one (1) day. The optimum ‘contact time’ for this training is seen as 7 hours and 5 minutes.
