Confined Space Gas Test & Issue Permits – 2 Day Course

This 2 Day Confined Space Training course is designed for people who wish to enter and work in a confined space, who wish to be able to gas test the space and issue work permits.  This course DOES NOT make you competent to perform confined space rescue.

Courses commence every Monday & Wednesday at our Guildford training centre. The training is compliant with “The Core Training Elements for the National Standard for Safe Working in a Confined Space” and the training also covers the Australian Standard AS/NZ 2865 (2009) Safe Working in a Confined Space.  We also comply with the National Workplace Health and Safety Act by following the new National Code of Practice for Confined Spaces.

This is a competency based programme, practical skills need to be achieved after classroom presentation of information.
