Course Overview

“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 with a hands-on role in the hazard analysis and risk assessment aspects of confined space operations
  • Anyone who may have to act in the role of standby person
  • Anyone who wants to be able to issue work permits

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, hazard analysis, and the permit issuing process.

General overview

This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. Pinnacle are a national leader in confined space training, and this course is tailored to the major site-specific training requirements focusing on the safety procedures and practical scenarios relevant to the typical confined space operations on WA sites. 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
  • Discharge the obligations of a standby person, and supervise confined space operations

Trainees who need to be able to undertake confined space rescue, please see our Confined Space Rescue course.

Employers having a group of employees who have completed this course within the last 24 months may be eligible for our Confined Space Refresher program. Find out more here.

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.

I found Kerryn to be an excellent trainer and presenter who was able to share her industry experience well. The fact that she regularly provides Confined Spaces services to industry reflects well.

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.
