OPITO Tropical Courses
OPITO has designed specific courses for tropical environments. The weather conditions in these parts of the world are so different that courses had to be adjusted to that. The T-BOSIET (Tropical BOSIET) course is mandatory for everyone that wants to work in the oil and gas industry in tropical environments. This certificate is valid for 4 years, after which a refresher course, the T-FOET course, needs te be done. Without the T-HUET certificate you are not allowed to enter a helicopter, which is often necessary to reach the platform you need to work on. This module is included in the T-BOSIET and T-FOET, but can also be taken separately.
What is OPITO?
OPITO is established in 1977 and stands for Offshore Petroleum Industry Training organisation. They are the counterpart of NOGEPA and have the same interests. While NOGEPA operates only in Dutch area’s, OPITO wants to have globally recognised guidelines for the oil and gas industry. This way, OPITO ensures the safety in the oil and gas industry with specific requirements and needs for training, because good medical and safety training is very important for the oil and gas industry. Employees are often self-reliant, which means they need enough medical and safety knowledge to safely do their daily work.
Besides monitoring the training standard, OPITO wants to help with innovations for the offshore and onshore oil and gas sector.
