OPITO now requires the Heli Refuelling certification as part of the overall HLO certification. In additon, UKCAA CAP 437 now requires all crew members involved in heli refuelling to be certified.

The HLO is responsible for all offshore heli refuelling activities. Together with the HDA's, the HLO must ensure that all refuelling equipment is maintained in good condition and certified accordingly. Standard procedures during refuelling must be strictly adhered to and crew members must be highly aware of required activities during any refuelling potential emergency.

The aim and objectives of the Offshore Heli Refuelling Training are to ensure that the entire refuelling process, from design phase to completion of each refuelling operation, is carried out as a well-planned, controlled and systematic operation by all concerned parties, to ensure maximum safety standards are maintained during the entire operation.
