Face to face delivery. This confined space training construction course involves a theory and practical assessment.

There are no prerequisites, however participants must be able to converse and comprehend basic English.

Trainees should be aware that this course is physically demanding, requiring a substantial amount of crawling, climbing, bending and lifting.

  • Required Government issued photo identification
  • Unique Student Identifier (USI)
  • Closed toe shoes

Upon successful completion of the confined space construction training, participants receive a wallet card and an electronic copy of Statement of Attainment.

Depending on which course option is chosen, these Nationally Recognised Units of Competencies describe the skills and knowledge required to enter and work in confined spaces in the resources and infrastructure industries and also cover 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. It covers the skills and knowledge required to work in accordance with an issued permit. It aims to ensure that people working under a permit to work understand the system, know the limitations of the permit under which they are working and comply with all the requirements of the permit. It covers the skills and knowledge required to test the working atmosphere, using electronic test apparatus, to find out if it is safe for the proposed work. It covers the skills required to conduct a hazard analysis, typically called a job safety analysis (JSA) or safe work method statement (SWMS) and covers the skills and knowledge required to issue work permits. It covers an understanding of the permit system and the limitations of each permit and making decisions regarding the need for and correct use of each permit.
