    The aim of the Tropical HUET training programme is to prepare delegates that intend to travel to and from offshore oil and gas installations and vessels by helicopter in a tropical environment by providing specific training in pre-flight and in-flight requirements and to equip delegates with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills required in the event of a helicopter emergency – with specific focus on
    escaping from a helicopter following ditching and sea survival techniques.

    The objectives of the T-HUET Training are that delegates will be able to:
