Upgrade your OPITO HUET to OPITO FOET in Houma

17 July 2020

The American Industry Forum has agreed several initiatives in respect to OPITO Basic Survival training courses, the OPITO HUET, OPITO BOSIET and OPITO FOET.

OPITO FOET with a valid OPITO HUET certificate

Did you already know that it is possible to do the OPITO FOET (refresher course) with only your OPITO HUET or OPITO T-HUET in the US?

The Forum agreed that valid OPITO HUET and T-HUET certification and non OPITO HUET and T-HUET certificates would be acceptable pre-requisites for delegates wishing to renew their certification by undertaking OPITO FOET (with CA-EBS) training. This would also apply to delegates wishing to renew OPITO HUET and T-HUET certification by undertaking T-FOET (in conjunction with CA-EBS).

This means that you can book the OPITO FOET with CA-EBS and OPITO T-FOET with CA-EBS with only holding a valid HUET certificate now.

Book below your OPITO FOET course:
OPITO FOET with CA-EBS
OPITO T-FOET with CA-EBS

Other agreements regarding OPITO in the US

Beside of the change of the pre-requisites of the OPITO FOET with CA-EBS and OPITO T-FOET with CA-EBS.

The Industry Forum agreed also non OPITO HUET and T-HUET certificates are to be accepted as suitable pre-requisites for OPITO CA-EBS Initial Deployment training.

The Forum agreed that CAPP certification was the only real recognized equivalent being used in the USA and therefore should automatically be accepted. The Forum agreed that CAPP certification and those covered under the UKCS Mutual Recognition Agreement (Norway, Netherlands and Denmark) are the only acceptable certificates. There are no others which will be accepted.
