Offshore survival training


Offshore survival training will give you an insight into travelling and working offshore.

Offshore survival training involves simulated scenarios that replicate actual events in as much detail as possible in a safe and controlled training environment. 

You will be equipped with the vital life-saving skills required to survive a controlled helicopter ditching or rig/vessel evacuation.

Our offshore survival training pools are equipped with environmental effects simulators including wind, waves, rain, thunder and lightening.

Our industry-experienced instructors will provide advice and guidance throughout the training and ensure you are comfortable and confident throughout the practical exercises.

We have two survival system METS 30 Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) which feature internal layouts exactly replicating the helicopters used in the North Sea fleet (Eurocopter Superpuma 225, Sikorsky S-92 and Augustawestland AW139).

Realistic HUET training is vital because trainees are taught to escape a ditched helicopter using touch as primary means of orientation. 

We train offshore helicopter pilots for the largest North Sea helicopter operators as well as pilots and crew of the UK Search And Rescue (SAR) force and Air Ambulance crew from all over the UK.
