Course Overview

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 act as a standby person. For more advanced confined space training (including gas testing, issuing permits, use of breathing apparatus) or for training that covers planning and supervision of 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, operate gas detectors, 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
  • Work safely within confined spaces according to an issued permit
  • Operate various confined space safety equipment.

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; and
  • is, or is designed or intended to be, at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space; and
  • is or is likely to be a risk to health and safety from:
    • an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level, or
    • contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion, or
    • harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants, or
    • engulfment.

Examples of confined spaces include (but are not limited to):

  • Storage tanks
  • Tank cars
  • Process vessels
  • Pressure vessels
  • Boilers
  • Silos and other tank-like compartments
  • Pits and degreasers
  • Pipes
  • Sewers
  • 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

This course is recommended for:

  • Workers who will be performing confined space work, but are not required to write a permit, monitor gas levels, wear breathing apparatus
  • Electrical engineers
  • Safety inspectors

Raymond the trainer spoke very clearly (important) and was obviously very knowledgeable about confined space. He highlighted practical applications and really got the “personal safety” message across to the group. I have done these courses before, however I got more out of this due to the “SKILL” of the trainer to get the critical messages across.

The practical exercises were helpful in executing all the theory we had learnt during the morning session. Having three practical exercises is a good strategy as I was able to gain something from each one confined space entry (mistakes I made plus observing others under a little pressure).

A good one-day course which I would recommend.

Great trainer for the course, Lester did a great job of keeping me involved and interested which would not have been easy as I have done this course twice before. I came out of the course with a greater knowledge and understanding of what a confined space ticket allows me to do/not to do. I have been in my industry for over 10 years, so to say I learnt something new about something I do every day is great and I put that down to Lester’s training methods.
