Confined Spaces + Work Safely at Heights + Gas Test Atmospheres Training Course Information

Course duration: 1-Day (8 hours)

This course provides practical training on Australian Standard AS2865-2009. This Standard sets out the particular requirements and risk control measures for the safety of persons entering or conducting tasks associated with confined spaces, and has been designed to meet the national competency standards for confined space entry. This Nationally recognised course also provides students the skills and knowledge required to test the working area’s atmosphere using electronic testing apparatus, to find out if it is safe for the proposed work. It applies to situations where an individual may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or a confined space. It also satisfies the training required for working safely whereupon the risk of falling from one level to another is involved. It also satisfies the training requirements of the Victorian, Commonwealth and other state regulations.

This course is delivered via our Leaner Management System (LMS) using touch screen computers meaning at ACTA we deliver paperless training to meet the demands of ever changing technology and environmental requirements within the training industry.
