Underwater Egress Training


Underwater egress training


  • The Modular Amphibious Egress Trainer (MAET) is an underwater egress trainer that represents specific aircraft, cockpits and cabin emergency escape exits. The system replicates the cabin of a CH-53 and MV-22.
  • The Submerged Vehicle Egress Trainer (SVET) is a UET that has the same modular core and rotational capabilities as the MAET, but dedicated for the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) & the Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV).
  • The Shallow Water Egress Trainer (SWET) is a single-seat emergency egress trainer. This is used to introduce Marines to water submersion and emergency breathing devices.
Benefit of utilizing the UET:
  • Provide Marines with the knowledge, skills and abilities to safely egress a submerged vehicle/aircraft. 
  • Teaches Marines the principles of breathing compressed air while performing egress procedures.
  • Teaches Marines and sailors the principles and skills required to successfully survive a catastrophic event.
Training Requirement for the UET:
  • Medical Screening Forms (available Range Management Support System).
  • Current Swim Qualifications.
Locations for UET:
  1. MCB Camp Pendleton, C.A.
  2. MCB Okinawa, Japan
  3. MCB Hawaii
  4. MCB Camp Lejeune, N.C.
