Confined Space Entry & Breathing Apparatus Refresher

Home | Training | Confined Space Entry & Breathing Apparatus Refresher


Course Overview

Our combined Confined Space and Breathing Apparatus 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.

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.

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 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 BA and 2 years ago for CSE
  • Have not worked in or around a confined space or used breathing apparatus 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.

All participants in this course must have previously completed a full 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.
