Course overview

Mines Rescue offers three Confined Space courses designed to meet the needs of individuals who are required to enter and work in a confined space, perform standby or supervisory duties, perform confined space rescue and operate under breathing apparatus. Mines Rescue also offer one day re-accreditation, and a one day refresher program.

  • One day - Entry/Workers
  • Two days - Standby/supervisors
  • Three days - Standby/supervisors, CABA and confined space rescue
  • One day refresher - Standby/supervisors, CABA and confined space rescue

Our training involves practical experience in real confined spaces including tunnels, containers, tanks, drains and shafts.

Upon successful completion of training, participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment for the units of competency listed in the table below:

  • Legislation and safe work procedures
  • Risk assessments
  • Permit to work systems
  • The operation of confined space equipment

Participants completing the Refresher training will be issued a Statement of Attendance.

To maintain currency of skills and knowledge, Mines Rescue recommends a refresher course be undertaken every two years.
