Short Courses


The Institute of Professional Studies at UCLan Cyprus, in co-operation with the International Safety Training College (ISTC) in Malta, offer basic Offshore Safety Training and Certification.




BOSIET (with CA-EBS): Basic Offshore Survival Induction & Emergency Training (with CA-EBS)

This training programme is designed to meet the initial offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new to the offshore industry.

The aim of the BOSIET (with CA-EBS) is to introduce delegates to the specific safety issues and regimes relevant to offshore installations, and to equip them with the basic emergency response knowledge & skills for travelling to and from offshore installations by helicopter.

Training and/or assessment activities contained within this course may include physically demanding and potentially stressful elements. All personnel who participate in such activities must be physically and mentally capable of participating fully. Therefore OPITO approved training centres are required, as a minimum, to ensure that prior to participating practical exercises, the delegate must undergo medical screening by completing an appropriate medical screening form provided by the OPITO approved centre.
