IDESS’ further offshore emergency training programme is designed to meet further offshore safety and emergency response training and assessment requirements for personnel working in the offshore oil and gas industry. This course may be taken to upgrade an unexpired Tropical BOSIET or FOET to the BOSIET / FOET standard.
During the FOET programme, delegates have the opportunity to practice and demonstrate skills that are not covered during drills, exercises and offshore training. Topics covered in the course include emergency first aid, firefighting and self rescue, helicopter safety and escape.
The course is open to those holding a valid OPITO BOSIET, FOET, Tropical BOSIET or Tropical FOET course certificate.
IDESS’ underwater remotely operated vehicle pilot technician course content is in line with the IMCA guidance documents and syllabi for ROV-related training courses.
Conducted in conjunction with Subnet Services, the course will provide trainees with considerable hands-on experience in flying and working with remotely operated underwater vehicles in the realistic environment of Subic Bay, in addition to theoretical instruction.
The course is designed as an entry-level course for personnel with no prior operational experience. Once completed, the trainee will have gained knowledge, understanding and experience in the operation of remotely operated underwater vehicles.
The course is open to personnel who have a good background in electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, plant maintenance, electrical or mechanical engineering.
