As Perth’s leading provider of training and consultancy services, IFAP gives you the opportunity to undertake the Tropical Further Offshore Emergency Training (TFOET) course in Perth.
The objective of the TFOET course is to provide refresher training for components of a previously completed OPITO TBOSIET course. This Perth-based course will assess knowledge retention in the following areas:
- Helicopter underwater escape theory and practical
- First response firefighting theory and practical
- Self-rescue from smoke theory and practical
The training strategy for this course includes assessment of retained knowledge and brief classroom theory, followed by practical exercises. With the help of IFAP’s qualified Perth trainers, we can equip you with the necessary skills and procedure guidelines within the TFOET course.
The objective of this Perth-based course is to ensure that participants gain the required knowledge and understanding of the particular hazards and properties of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA–EBS).
This CA-EBS course seeks to inform participants of the purpose and use of a Compressed Air Breathing System (CA-EBS) in emergency situations. Participants will be guided through the appropriate practical emergency response actions to take should the requirement for emergency deployment arises. Participants who have completed a Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) qualification would also find this course beneficial.
On completion of the TFOET course, participants will be able to:
- Describe and carry out appropriate actions in preparation for a helicopter ditching
- Take appropriate actions following:
- A controlled ditching on water
- A partial submersion of an aircraft
- An aircraft capsize in water
- Correctly fit a helicopter strop and adopt correct body posture during winching
- Correctly use hand held portable fire extinguishers
- Correctly use small bore fire hoses and fire blankets
- Use appropriate self-rescue techniques using a smoke hood
Upon completion of the CA-EBS course, participants should be able to have the knowledge and understanding of the following subjects:
- The correct use of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS)
- The role of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) in an emergency situation
- The specific hazards and properties of a Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS)
- The appropriate emergency response actions to take in the event of an emergency deployment
On successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a photo ID card, registration onto the OPITO database and an OPITO certificate of attendance for the course Tropical Further Offshore Emergency Training.
- Photo identification must be provided – Passport, Australian Driver’s Licence or Proof of Age Card only will be accepted.
