Confined Space Entry, Breathing Apparatus & CPR Refresher

Home | Training | Confined Space Entry, Breathing Apparatus & CPR Refresher


Course Overview

Our combined Confined Space, Breathing Apparatus and CPR course covers the skills and knowledge required for working under a permit, safe entry into confined spaces while using breathing apparatus and atmospheric monitoring equipment to maintain air quality and a safe working environment. It also provides the learner with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are required to respond to an unconscious, non-breathing person.

Participants are guided through recognition of typical hazardous conditions relating to confined spaces including; oxygen depletion, combustible atmospheres and atmospheric contaminants. Armed with the knowledge to identify potential hazards, participants learn how to assess a task, control the hazards and develop and implement safe work practices.

Each participant is provided with the opportunity to become comfortable wearing breathing apparatus in controlled conditions, before learning to work in darkness, noisy and smoke filled confined space environments. Practical training includes search and rescue exercises to allow participants to apply and develop relevant skills.

Participants are guided through recognition of typical hazardous conditions relating to confined spaces including; oxygen depletion, combustible atmospheres and atmospheric contaminants. Armed with the knowledge to identify potential hazards, participants learn how to assess a task, control the hazards and develop and implement safe work practices. Learners cover the duties of confined space operators, standby personnel and rescue crews all of these are presented in a combination of classroom and practical activities.

The provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation portion of this course is designed to teach CPR in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Guidelines and assess that the attendee has sufficient confidence to know when and how CPR should be applied. CPR is an essential skill that has allowed regular people to save the lives of family, friends, colleagues and strangers. The CPR theory component is delivered at the beginning of the course prior to CSE and then is practically assessed with the rescue component of CSE.

Prospective participants in this combined refresher course are people who already hold these competencies and are looking to have their skills and knowledge recertified due to:

  • Having gained their units for CPR and BA more than one year prior and their CSE units more than 2 years prior
  • Had their skills, knowledge and currency assessed more than 1 year for CPR and BA and 2 years ago for CSE
  • Have not worked in or around a confined space, breathing apparatus or performed CPR for an extended period of time

Refresher Training

Industry recommends that refresher training for breathing apparatus should be completed yearly and confined space entry should be completed every 2 years. In line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) must be refreshed annually.

All participants in this course must have previously completed a CPR, a Breathing Apparatus and a Confined Space Entry training course and be able to provide evidence they have these (or equivalent) units of competency. Due to this the assessment is conducted first as a gap analysis tool, from this the training is then tailored to each group of learners.
