OIM Controlling Emergencies


The aim and objective of the OIM Controlling Emergencies Competence Assessment is to formally assess the candidate in the role of an OIM during an emergency situation in a simulated environment.

Target Group

The target group for the OIM Controlling Emergencies Competence Assessment are personnel who have been deemed ready by their employer to be formally assessed in the role of an OIM during an emergency situation.


Candidates require a formal declaration from the candidate’s employer confirming that the candidate has achieved the performance criteria in Element 1.1 in the workplace, satisfied the core essential knowledge and asset type knowledge requirements and that the candidate has been deemed ready for formal assessment against Elements 1. 2 to 1.6.


OPITO approved certification for OIM Controlling Emergencies will be issued upon successful completion of the assessment.

Course Contents

The candidate will be assessed against the performance criteria specified in Elements 1.2 to 1.6 under simulated conditions using a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 emergency scenarios based on the type of asset where the candidate is normally required to fulfil the OIM role as agreed and confirmed by the Duty Holder.

i. Evacuation or abandonment of asset by air and/or sea
ii. Injured personnel or loss of life
iii. Missing personnel or man overboard
