“Should I do the 1 day course or this 2 day course?”
Our Confined Space Entry 2 day course is for:
- Anyone who wants a greater depth of knowledge of working in confined spaces
- Anyone who needs a ‘gas test atmospheres’ certification in order to be able to operate a gas detector
- Anyone who wants to be able to issue work permits
- Anyone who may need to supervise other workers during confined space operations.
This course covers everything from our regular Confined Space Entry 1 day course, with an extra day for the content and practical activities relating to roles and responsibilities of the team, the confined space risk assessment process, gas testing and issuing permits.
This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. The course can be tailored to suit your company’s specific training requirements focusing on the safety procedures and practical scenarios relevant to your particular confined space operations. While there is a standard set of learning outcomes for the course, we understand that the context and environment in which the learning is applied is varied. It is designed to teach participants how to:
- Identify and control confined space hazards
- Work safely within confined spaces
- Complete relevant risk assessments and permits
- Issue entry permits for confined space operations
- Operate various confined space safety equipment to allow for vertical or horizontal entries
- Understand the effects of airbourne hazards on the body
- Use a gas detector and interpret readings
- Discharge the obligations of a standby person, and supervise confined space operations.
If you need to be able to operate breathing apparatus, please see our Operate Breathing Apparatus course.
Likewise, if you need to be able to undertake confined space rescue, please see our Confined Space Rescue course.
What is a confined space?
According to the Safe Work Australia Code of Practice, a “confined space” means an enclosed or partially enclosed space that:
- is not designed or intended primarily to be occupied by a person;
- is, or is designed or intended to be, at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space;
- is or is likely to be a risk to health and safety from:
- an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level,
- contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion,
- harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants,
Examples of confined spaces include (but are not limited to):
- Storage tanks
- Tank cars
- Process vessels
- Pressure vessels
- Silos and other tank-like compartments
- Pits and degreasers
- Sewer pump stations including wet and dry wells, shafts and ducts
- Shipboard spaces entered through small hatchways or access points, cargo tanks, cellular double bottom tanks, duct keels, ballast or oil tanks and void spaces.

Good to see a company and instructor not just a tick and flick motto. I had done this course through another company a while ago and was nowhere near this standard.

Training was excellent, the level of knowledge the trainer had about the subject was great. The practical component was very well done, it gave a real insight into how what you were learning would be used in the field. The smaller class size allowed the trainer to give each individual the time they required to gain a full understanding of the course. Having spent a substantial amount of years in the Construction/Maintenance field, it was very refreshing to participate in training that wasn’t run with the aim of simply ticking a box. The trainer showed a commitment to ensuring everyone in the class would be completely able to go out into the work site & apply what they were learning with a good grasp on the responsibilities that come along with performing the task. It was a well run course & it was an enjoyable to attend.

Overall an excellent experience. From the organisation and professionalism shown by Courtney in the office, to the training given by Jay - who is by far the best trainer I’ve ever been taught by. Very cost-effective and time-efficient training. Congratulations on your organisation, Pinnacle!
