Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) Medicals

Medicals for course applicants

Dr Dimitri Andropov at Territory Medical offers Medicals for applicants wishing to undertake the Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (or HUET) courses, BOSIET, T-BOSIET and CA -EBS courses and others offered in Darwin, East Arm or elsewhere. Applicants will be screened for medical conditions that will ultimately help reduce the risk to health and safety of themselves and others on these courses. These courses equip offshore personnel with the knowledge, skills and confidence to respond appropriately in the event of an emergency while offshore and to enhance their survivability in the event of an emergency through the proper use of emergency equipment and procedures. 

TBOSIET course has been developed to be an internationally accepted warm water course covering Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET), related sea survival and an introduction to offshore work (permit-to-work, OSH regulations, first aid reminder etc). The TBOSIET is recognised and accepted as the ‘Fit for Purpose’ internationally-recognised standard in most SE Asian and Middle Eastern countries (Brunei, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Abu Dhabi, Azabyjan). TBOSIET certificate holders can also easily upgrade to the UK (or cold water) 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.
