Offshore Survival Courses

These courses are also essential to those who are looking for work in the offshore industry for the first time.

Petans provides individuals with OPITO accredited, basic and refresher training, which can also be provided in accordance with OLF for those seeking to work in the Norwegian sector.


From the 26th March 2018 the BOSIET CA-EBS/ FOET CA-EBS/ HUET CA-EBS will include in-water CA-EBS training.  In order to be able to complete CA-EBS in-water training delegates, when attending the course must bring with them:

  • A valid, unexpired Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) offshore medical certificate confirming the delegates fitness for offshore work within the UK OR possesses a valid, unexpired offshore medical certificate issued by a body outside of the UK which is recognised as equivalent to the OGUK medical certificate of fitness for offshore work in the UK, AND
  • A certificate of fitness to undertake shallow water CA-EBS training issued by a registered OGUK examining doctor for work in the UK.
  • If delegates possess a valid and current certificate of medical fitness provided by an Approved Medical Examiner of Diving (AMED) they will not be required to possess either a OGUK offshore medical examination or a ‘fitness to train’ certificate as they have already met the requirements of the Diving at Work Regulations 1997. 

 Please note ALL delegates are required to undertake in water training unless a doctor deems them unfit to train.  Therefore it is essential that delegates bring with them the above medical evidence, please be aware that failure to provide the correct medical evidence will mean that we are unable to certificate you on the day of the course and you may need to return in order to complete the CA-EBS In-Water Training and receive your certificate.

Please refer to the OPITO FAQ for further guidance
