Project Description

Confined Space, Permits, Rescue and Breathing Apparatus (Refresher)

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 Annual Confined Space Entry Training Refresher Course in Melbourne is designed for persons working within or around limited spaces, or who engage in related outdoor recreational activities such as caving.

This confined space entry training 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).

South East Water requires that a refresher course for Confined Space be completed every 24 months (CPR every 12 Months).

At the time of booking this Annual Confined Space Entry Refresher Course, students will be eligible to book in for our complementary CPR training.

There are no prerequisite requirements for the units MSMPER200, MSMWHS216 and RIIWHS202E. 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.
