The Hi-Con Training team of experts brings superior experience in high-consequence and immersive survival and safety training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). This unique, underwater training facility at JSC provides an environment that enables some of the most authentic emergency simulations in the world.

HI-CON Survival Training

The Hi-Con Training Program provides a rigorous and experiential learning environment that instills confidence and empowers trainees with the knowledge and skills to act when it counts. This type of behavioral-based training imparts the confidence and control that is vital in effectively dealing with emergency situations.

Hi-Con Survival Training includes:

  • Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET)
  • Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET)
  • Further Offshore Emergency Training (FOET)

The JSC Training Facility

NASA's underwater training facility at the JSC is the most advanced in the world. The 6.2 million gallon, 40-foot deep pool was originally designed to support space-walk planning, testing and training, using full-scale mock-ups of the International Space Station and Space Shuttle. The immense scale is matched by its technological sophistication. While the pool continues to support NASA’s space program, designated areas have been assigned to meet the needs of the Hi-Con survival training program.
