Company Profile

ETSDC is a leading Middle East specialist in providing world class Safety training to global and regional approved standards.

ETSDC has a dedicated fire fighting and escape training facility, as well as an indoor pool in which we run our HUET [Helicopter Underwater Escape Training] and other offshore trainings.

We have several high furnished classrooms for trainees, in addition to three changing rooms and a large dining hall.


ETSDC is the First OPITO(Offshore Petroleum Industry Training Organisation) accredited training centre in the Middle East. Our other accreditations include the International Association for Safety and Survival Training, IASST, IFSM (Institute of Fire & Safety Mangers), ISO 9001 accreditation.
