In addition to the mentioned concession courses, exercises for the HUET - Helicopter Underwater Escape Training course are also held at the Resnik training ground.
This course is essential in many segments of the maritime industry, especially for the staff in the offshore industry, but also for military and mountain rescue service personnel which is regularly transported by helicopter. As the name implies, the purpose is to prepare candidates for emergency exit in the case of a crash landing over water and to train them for rescue in such situations. The training involves simulated sinking in a pool while rotating the training module upside down with the various background situations. Simultaneously, the candidates are being familiarized to some of the most important actions connected with the crash, as well as the proper response during the fall, avoiding of smoke inhalation, escaping from a helicopter in the quickest and safest way, and the emerging holding the breath or with bottles of oxygen.
