TBOSIET certificate holders can also easily upgrade to the BOSIET qualification required for the North Sea and other cold water areas. Participants upgrading will need to complete additional HUET simulator exercises while wearing a transit suit and using an emergency breathing system. This upgrade course is available at both IFAP training centres in Perth and most other OPITO approved facilities which hold both the BOSIET and TBOSIET approvals.

The Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training course is designed to equip offshore personnel with the knowledge, skills and confidence to respond appropriately in the event of an emergency whilst offshore.
