Course Overview

Our confined space training courses covers the skills and knowledge required for safe entry to confined spaces under a work permit and for maintaining safety while working in the confined space. 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 also cover duties of confined space operators, standby personnel and rescue crews are presented in a combination of classroom and practical activities; leading to an assessment and entry of a confined space under controlled conditions, which is followed by a simulated rescue. Participants are encouraged throughout the program to develop, participate and apply skills in the safe management of confined spaces; from identification and planning through to execution and completion of confined space activities.

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

  • Gained their units of competency more than 2 years prior;
  • Had their skills, knowledge and currency assessed more than 2 years ago;
