We are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO:22250) and hold independently audited ISO9001-2008 Quality Management Certification
Our confined space rescue training course is designed to teach learners how to determine what hazards may exist within a confined space, how to put into place a confined space rescue plan and how to carry out a confined space rescue, in accordance with confined space regulations and standards. The confined space rescue training course is designed to thoroughly prepare learners how to safely complete confined space rescues in potentially hazardous environments.
Confined Space Rescue Training is provided to organisations where personnel may be required to rescue other personnel from inside confined spaces. This course aims to cover all of the confined space rescue information and skills necessary to ensure participants are able to confidently and safely initiate:
This level of first aid training can be accessed by individuals and employee groups that:
This qualification forms the pre-entry standard for many ‘mines rescue’ or firefighter training courses.
To maintain proficiency and current competence at this level revalidation is recommended every year,
Due to the nature of practical exercises skirts, dresses or long flowing garments are not considered appropriate.
All delivery takes place in the RTO’s training centre or in a suitable negotiated location. This training is delivered face-to-face over 3 days (24 hours group size depending).
If no suitable confined space rescue areas exist on-site we have practical confined space rescue training facilities in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin and Perth. If you prefer on-site training we can bring one of our 4 confined space rescue training trailers onto your site and train your personnel.
This confined space rescue training trailer (pictured below) ensures that all course participants are able to undergo practical confined space entry activities in a realistic and safe environment. Our trailer is over
4.0m long and 2.0m high and can be taken anywhere in Australia. In fact we have 4 trailers across WA, NSW, SA & QLD that can be used for various confined space training courses. This trailer is used to replicate realistic confined space training and confined space rescue scenarios.
The course is around 60% Practical and 40% theory. Practical confined space rescue skills are an extremely important part of the course and of the skillset of emergency response team members. Many participants comment that our course is better than other training companies because of our emphasis on practical confined space rescue training scenarios. Throughout the course participants must demonstrate competency during a series of practical skills evaluation and verbal assessments which include the following:
1. Observation and practical assessment
3. Scenario-problem solving
4. Attendance at all lessons
Supplementary assessments are available should the minimum achievement not be reached at the first attempt.
The opportunity for Recognition of Prior Learning/Current Competencies is available to any candidate who feels that they may have developed some/all of the competencies in the course through previous study or work experience. RPL/RCC is to be discussed with the RTO prior to course commencement.
Our confined space rescue training course lasts for 3 days and will teach your personnel how to rescue personnel from confined spaces in accordance with OHS Regulations and Australian Standard 2865-2009. This confined space rescue training course also includes a breathing apparatus training module so that learners understand how to rescue a person from a hazardous atmosphere within a confined space whilst remaining safe.
In 2012 we trained well over 4,000 people in confined space training. We have several large national contracts with clients to complete confined space training for hundreds of organisations each year. Details of some of our current clients appear to the right.
During the confined space rescue training courses we cover both the theory and practical sides to perform confined space rescues. Confined space rescue training courses are only conducted by experienced emergency services and industry personnel who are fully competent in the usage of confined space equipment and in undertaking confined spaces rescues in a variety of situations.
Our confined space rescue training courses are nationally recognised training courses and are taught through the Manufacturing Training Package and the Resources and Infastructure Training Package. Learners whom are assessed competent will receive a statement of attainment in the relevant units of competency.
We currently teach some of Australia’s largest companies Confined Space Rescue Training throughout Australia including organisation like Cement Australia, Alcoa, Snowy Hydro Power Stations, Newport Power Station, Virgin Tech, CSR, James Hardie and many more.
Prior to your confined space rescue training course occurring, we will request a copy of your confined space rescue training policies, confined space rescue procedures, confined space safety procedures and confined space rescue plans. By having a copy of your confined space rescue procedures and plans before we conduct the confined space training, our trainers are able to customize and tailor the confined space training course directly to your requirements.
We provide on-site confined space rescue training and breathing apparatus training courses at your workplace (normally for 4+ personnel) and we also provide regular confined space rescue training (public/open) courses in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin, Sydney and Perth (Refer to our public course dates for upcoming courses)
Along with confined space rescue training, Fire and Safety Australia offers several other courses that may be combined with this course to save money.
