This 1 day Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET) (non STCW) course is designed for both the swimmer and non swimmer to practice or learn aquatic emergency response skills and maximize the chances of surviving an emergency at sea during travel over/on the water. The course includes both classroom lecture and in-water hands on training. Instructional topics include: Philosophy of Survival, Crisis Management & Role of a Leader, Helicopter Safety Awareness, Helicopter Emergency (Ditching) Procedures, Underwater Egress Techniques, Aquatic Medical Management, USCG Lifesaving Equipment used during an abandonment – PFD, Immersion Suits, Emergency Distress Flares.   Trainees are requested to bring a towel, clean set of work clothes for in-water training, and a positive attitude.

*Note: Maine Maritime HUET training utilizes an in-water training unit called a SWETS (shallow water egress training simulator) rather than a full scale METS.
