No, this course is for working under permits, not issuing them.

Australian Standard 2865 Confined Spaces requires that individuals undergo reassessment at appropriate intervals. Essentially, your employer needs to have a policy outlining how often refresher training needs to be done (based on their risk assessment).

This is so that we can make sure that our Trainer is safe, and also so that our Trainer is familiar with the processes that your business follows. We can also flag any differences between your processes and our course content, so that contradictions can be resolved prior to course commencement.

Trainees wanting to complete the breathing apparatus unit are required to achieve a positive seal whilst wearing a breathing apparatus (note that Trainees who attend with facial hair which inhibits a positive seal may not be able to complete the unit).

Yes – Trainees should be aware that this course is physically demanding, requiring a substantial amount of bending, crawling and lifting via the use of manual hauling systems.
