A confined space may be an area of restricted entry and exit, may have an atmosphere which contains potentially harmful levels of a contaminant, unsafe levels of oxygen or may cause engulfment. This Confined Space Entry Training course in Melbourne is designed for persons working within or around limited spaces (e.g. utility vault, pipes, sewers etcetera), or who engage in related outdoor recreational activities such as caving.

This confined space course is designed to meet the training/certification requirements of South East Water. Four units forming part of this course are clustered (grouped, taught and assessed together).

Construction Training Group’s Confined Space training will provide you with the essential knowledge of equipment and procedures outlined in the OH&S Regulations / compliance codes. The training will give you detailed knowledge on the operation and maintenance of associated safety equipment; and to perform confined space rescue.

South East Water requires that a refresher course be completed every 12 months.

At the time of booking this Confined Space Entry Training course, students will be eligible to book in for our complementary CPR (HLTAID001) training.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisite requirements for the units MSMPER200, MSMWHS216D and RIIWHS202D. However, the following prerequisites apply to the unit PUASAR025 in relation to the fire sector.

The fire sector is those sections of government departments, statutory authorities or organisations that have responsibility under jurisdictional arrangements for the delivery of firefighting and fire management services.

It is essential that the prerequisite units listed below are obtained by individuals working within the fire sector or the units contributing to the attainment of a fire qualification prior to attending our course.

  • PUASAR022 Participate in a rescue operation.

Selection Criteria

We require you to hold a Construction Induction/White Card (completion of the unit CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry or equivalent) to enrol for this unit.

We run two courses for Confined Spaces (i.e. Confined Space Entry Training):

Students with minimal or no experience (beginner): We require applicants to hold a White Card (or equivalent).

Students with relevant industry experience (experienced): We require applicants to hold a White Card (or equivalent) and have a minimum of three (3) months experience in general construction, communication, plumbing, electrical and building maintenance industries and emergency services, voluntary organizations and/or organizations where confined space work is performed including rescue situations etcetera.

Participants will also need to satisfactorily complete a language, literacy and numeracy assessment to assess their capacity to meet unit requirements.

Applicants must also have the physical capacity to meet the manual work requirements of the units.

In order to avoid common issues experienced around Breathing Apparatus ‘Fit Check’, students are required to make any adjustments to their facial hair prior to attending the training session at CTG. This can be achieved by clean shaving or only having facial hair which will not interfere with the fitting surfaces and parts of the breathing apparatus face mask. Correct fit of a mask requires contact with smooth skin. This makes masks unsuitable for men with beards or moustaches.
