OPITO Basic Courses

OPITO Courses are for everyone working in the oil and gas industry. The OPITO Basic Course OPITO BOSIET is mandatory for every employee. Without this certificate you are not allowed to work in the oil and gas industry. This certificate is valid for 4 years. After these 4 years the certificate validity can be extended with an OPITO FOET course.

When you work at an offshore oil and gas platform it is also mandatory to have a valid HUET certificate. Without this certificate you are not allowed to enter the helicopter. This module is included in the BOSIET and FOET course, but can also be done separately.

What is OPITO?

OPITO is the abbreviation for Offshore Petroleum Industry Training Organisation. Their goal is to have globally recognised guidelines for the oil and gas industry. It is the counterpart of NOGEPA.

In 1977 OPITO was established to ensure safety in the oil and gas industry. Besides, OPITO wants to help with innovations and identifies the needs and requirements for training for both offshore and onshore. This way, everyone working in the industry needs to apply the same safety standards.

The right medical and safety training is very important for the oil and gas industry. The job comes with many risks and emergency services can have difficulty reaching the area of the incident.
