The diver should ensure that upon egress, the trainee is safe and moving in a controlled manner on the surface. After they have confirmed the trainee’s safety, they should then check to ensure that instructors are safely leaving the simulator. Once the safety of all personnel is confirmed with an OK signal, the divers can descend to collect the exits and reset them for the upcoming exercise evolution. The rules and legislative requirements for HUET divers vary significantly from region to region. HUET divers should undergo a training program that teaches them how to work and respond in this highly specialized environment.

The HUET components of the Norwegian program comprise aspects similar to those outlined in the CAPP guidelines. The GSK uses a “breathing lung” instead of a compressed-air EBS; however, it is also integrated into both wet and dry training requirements. Following a training session with the breathing lung in the water in which trainees must demonstrate their ability to breathe while submerged, GSK trainees undergo six HUET runs using a HUET simulator while seated adjacent to an exit.
