The OPITO and NOGEPA approved Compressed Air Emergency Breathing Systemen (CA-EBS) Training is designed for offshore workers travelling to work by helicopter and may be required to use a CA-EBS in the event of an emergency. During the training delegates learn about the fundamental differences between a re-breather and compressed air systems, the rational and use of the CA-EBS in helicopter emergency situations and the hazards associated with CA-EBS. Objective: To ensure that delegates gain the required knowledge and understanding of the particular hazards and properties of a CA-EBS and appropriate practical emergency response actions to take should the requirement for emergency deployment arise.
