1 Day FOET (with CA-EBS)

FOET (with CA-EBS)

Designed to meet the further safety and emergency training and assessment requirements for personnel working in the offshore oil and gas industry in UK waters. Delegates have the opportunity to practice and demonstrate emergency response skills which are not possible to practice during drills, exercises and emergency offshore training.

If you would like to add the Norwegian Escape Chute Training to your FOET Course please contact +44 (0)1603 891255 to book.

From the 26th March 2018 the FOET 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.
