Helicopter Underwater Escape Training with Emergency Breathing System (OPITO)


The OPITO-approved HUET (Helicopter Underwater Escape Training) is designated for people travelling to an offshore oil & gas installation with a helicopter. This training is the minimum requirement for most offshore companies when people want to bring a short visit to their platform. In this one day course we prepare delegates on travelling with a helicopter (pre-flight, in-flight and basic training on emergency procedures) and abandonment of a ditched helicopter.

The objectives of the HUET training are that delegates will be able to:
a) 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.

Target Group

The OPITO-approved HUET training programme is designed for personnel travelling to offshore installations/vessels via helicopter.

This course provides delegates with the necessary skills and knowledge in emergency response related to helicopter safety and escape using the emergency breathing system (EBS).


No training prerequisites are required.

The delegate must possess a valid, current offshore medical certificate or an operator approved medical certificate.


Delegates attending this training programme will be given a series of explanations and demonstrations by training staff which will identify what they are expected to know and do whilst preparing for and during normal helicopter travel and how to respond to helicopter emergencies.

This will be followed by practical exercises which will allow delegates to practice and demonstrate their emergency response skills, knowledge and understanding in the case of a helicopter emergency.

Delegates will be assessed against the learning outcomes specified in section B.5 of the OPITO HUET standard using direct observation.

Course Contents

The aim of the HUET programme is to prepare delegates that intend to travel to and from offshore oil and gas installations and vessels by helicopter 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 ad an helicopter emergency ¿ with specific focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching.
