bosiet renewable energy

The OPITO approved course, BOSIET for Renewable Energy (Transition) provides learners wishing to transition from the offshore oil and gas industry to the offshore wind industry, the ability to add to existing knowledge and skills without unnecessary repetition of training. Learners will gain the basic knowledge and skills required for the offshore wind industry, relevant to travelling offshore by vessel, with full access to the assets on which they will be operating.

Full Access encompasses access to and from the vessel operating within the offshore wind farm site, for construction, service, crew transfer, access to the offshore foundation including transition piece, jacket, platform, and wind turbines.


Limited Access encompasses access only to and from the vessel operating within the offshore wind farm site, for construction, service, crew transfer, access only to offshore foundation including transition piece, jacket, or platform.

The training programs are designed for personnel holding valid offshore oil and gas BOSIET or FOET certification who wish to transition into the offshore wind sector. The training will meet the initial offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel with full or limited access to offshore wind farm sites and associated areas and environment.

Learners will gain a theoretical understanding of the key health and safety aspects of offshore wind operations, and an opportunity to learn the basic skills required to travel and work safely and respond to an emergency situation in the offshore wind environment.
