Note: This is our basic course which gives you the skills to review a risk assessment, enter a confined space in accordance with an issued permit to conduct work, and conduct gas testing. For more advanced confined space training including hazard analysis, breathing apparatus and the issuing of work permits and supervising confined space operations, see our Confined Space 2 day course. This advanced training is required for anyone who may be required to control the works in the space via permit issuing or otherwise supervise confined space operations.
This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. The course can be tailored to suit the practical scenarios relevant to your company’s 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 confined space hazards and control risks
- Enter and work safely within confined spaces according to an issued permit
- Operate various confined space safety equipment
- Conduct gas testing of the atmosphere
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

I recently completed the Cert IV WHS and found it to be a great course and very informative. I was doing this course online in my own time and pace, but I had hit a snag and couldn’t keep myself motivated to keep going. I called Pinnacle and explained my situation and they were more than considerate to my position. After a good chat with one of their consultants I had signed up for the next course in Sydney. My instructor was Ian and this guy to me was the guru of WHS, his knowledge was absolutely second to none and his manner in the classroom made you feel relaxed and confident with all the content that he delivered. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom and learning from Ian, as well as learning from the other people in my class and the different areas that we all came from. Cheers guys.
