Do You Need To Attend This Course?
This course has been designed specifically for those who work in high risk confined spaces, or are planning to in the future.
High risk confined spaces are classified by areas that need to be entered in a non-standard way, which involve complex operations where tailored control measures are necessary. These environments can only be entered when using self-contained breathing apparatus.
The course will require each participant to demonstrate a high level of understanding of how to work in these environments and the special measures that need to be implemented.
Upon successful completion of this course, you receive a City & Guilds Level 2 Qualification.
