Course Overview

This short but comprehensive course is designed for anyone who requires a greater depth of knowledge when working in and around confined spaces, along with a requirement to test confined spaces, issue permits and also undertakes any risk assessment. Whilst a participant is able to complete this course without any pre-requisites, it would be advantageous to hold an existing certification for entering and working in a confined space. Should you wish to gain this qualification also, then our 2 day Confined Space Entry course would be more beneficial to you. Confined space refresher training is recommended every 12-24 months under Australian Standard AS2865-2009.
