Understand the operation and use of global maritime distress and safety systems like GMDSS, VHF Radio, SART, EPIRB, ELT, ADELT, and PLB.

The course extensively covers Helicopter Transportation, encompassing pre-flight and boarding operations, onboard safety equipment, helicopter floatation, and HUET, which stands for Helicopter Underwater Egress Training. From controlled to uncontrolled ditching, brace positions, and preparing for ditching challenges, you’ll gain comprehensive knowledge.

It validates your skills in platform abandonment, water entry, life raft boarding, and various survival techniques. Delegates will undergo scenarios to demonstrate the HELP & Group HUDDLE positions, survival circle, group swim techniques, and underwater egress procedures.
