Confined Space Refresher (1 Day)

Periodic confined space refresher training is required to ensure competency is maintained and to provide evidence that you are maintaining competence. The period between refresher training should be based on how often confined space entry skills and knowledge are used. For example, the less often the skills and knowledge are used, the more often you should complete refresher training and re assessment.

Generally, refresher training should be undertaken somewhere between 1 and 4 years, however if you do contract work you should always check if the organisation you are contracting to has specific requirements.

All personnel participating in this program must hold a recognised nationally accredited confined space certification no older than 4 years. They will need to bring this accreditation with them on the course for photo copying. If proof of this accreditation is not obtained by the trainer, only a certificate of attendance can be issued.
