Confined Space Entry Refresher
This course has been designed to reduce the amount of time previously educated and skilled participants spend in a classroom, whilst offering the ability to reissue nationally recognised confined space competencies in one day. Building on participants’ previously attained competencies, Fire and Safety Australia will confirm retention of knowledge and skills on hazard identifications, risk assessments and work permits for confined space operations and how to operate various confined space safety equipment through minimal theory and lots of practical-based learning and activities. Practical entries into confined spaces will be made and rescue scenarios will be also covered.
• Fitness to Participate declaration
• Sufficient language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the course
• Safety footwear, long sleeves and long pants

• RIIWHS202E Enter and work in confined spaces
• MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit
• MSMWHS201 Conduct hazard analysis
• MSMWHS217 Gas test atmospheres
• MSMPER300 Issue work permits
or equivalent units to the above as per training.gov.au
Statements of Attainment will be requested prior to the day of the participants training course. If cards are provided they must state the units of competence, date attained and identify the training provider that issued the card.

The industry regards reassessment on a two to three year cycle as good practice.
