RIIWHS202D Enter & Work in Confined Spaces - 1 Day Basic Course

The Enter and Work in Confined Spaces 1 Day Course is designed for Basic Confined Space Entry into simple structures. Whilst the course covers atmospheric monitoring as per WHS requirements, please note the formal Gas Testing and Observe Work Permit Qualifications are not able to be awarded in the one day option, although some information from these units is covered.

Depending on your work and industry requirements, this option may or may not be sufficient. Where formal atmospheric monitoring qualifications are required by the industry participants will need to complete the two day Enter and Work in Confined Spaces course.

This course awards participants with an industry specific, Nationally Accredited Statement of Attainment in Enter and Work in Confined Spaces. The course is aligned with the Work Health and Safety Legislation, the National Codes of Practice and relevant Australian Standards.
