In addition, the Offshore Petroleum Industry Training Organization wants to help the industry with innovations and job creation. In collaboration with industry stakeholders, OPITO identifies the needs and requirements for new and improved training and competency standards for both onshore and offshore. To make sure everyone working in the industry can do there job according to the safety standards, global standards were developed that are taught in OPITO courses. Each OPITO training providers needs to meet the requirements of OPITO.

    Why OPITO?

    Because being employed in the offshore industry often comes with a lot of dangers and because the work is conducted at open sea, the right medical and safety training is of vital importance. Emergency services can be miles away and therefore take much longer to get to the scene of the accident compared to when something happens on the mainland. OPITO training centres need to receive permission from OPITO to be able to offer their courses. These courses need to be of high quality and meet the standards of OPITO.

    The OPITO courses FMTC Safety offers

    By providing certified training of Offshore Petroleum Industry Training Organization, the employees that work on an offshore installation understand how things work on the offshore installation and how to respond to emergencies. The OPITO courses are available in several forms.

    We offer all OPITO courses:

    OPITO basic course

    Our basic course is called the Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET). This is a three-day training. Without a valid BOSIET certificate, it is not possible to work offshore in the oil and gas industry. The BOSIET with EBS certificate has a validity of 4 years. View our BOSIET course offer on this page to see the various basic courses.


    You can also follow the OPITO Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) training. Furthermore it’s possible to choose a combination course, such as BOSIET with EBS and CA-EBS. The CA-EBS certificate is mandatory if you work in the North Sea area. This certificate is valid indefinitely.

    It is also possible to obtain your OPITO E-BOSIET certificate through e-learning. This is the OPITO E-BOSIET (Digital Delivery BOSIET), which allows you to train for only 1 day at the training center. You learn all the theory at home through e-learning.
