Tropical Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (T-HUET) – OPITO Approved

Target Group for the Tropical HUET 

This training programme is designed to meet the offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new (or returning) to the offshore oil and gas industry in a tropical environment.

Aims and Objectives of Tropical HUET 

The aim of the Tropical HUET training programme is to prepare delegates that intend to travel to and from offshore oil and gas installations and vessels by helicopter in a tropical environment by providing specific training in pre-flight and in-flight requirements and to equip delegates with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills required in the event of a helicopter emergency – with specific focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching and sea survival techniques.

The objectives of the T-HUET Training 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 sea survival techniques

Delegate Pre-requisites for the Tropical HUET
