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.
Note: For more advanced confined space training (including gas testing and issuing permits) 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, operating gas detectors or otherwise supervising 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;
- 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
This course is recommended for:
- Identifying confined spaces
- WHS legislation, codes of practice and Australian Standards
- Roles and responsibilities
- Identification of hazards
- Risk assessment
- Hierarchy of controls
- Work site policy and procedures
- Completing confined space permit applications
- Working according to a confined space permit
- Isolation procedures
- Atmospheric monitoring
- Fall protection equipment
- Safety and emergency procedures
- Entry and exit procedures
- Practical entry into a range of confined spaces
Australian Standard AS2865 recommends refreshing confined space training every 12-24 months.
- 8 hours of face-to-face training conducted by an experienced confined space specialist
- Hands-on practical training designed to develop safe work practices
- Knowledge of relevant legislation, codes of practice and Australian Standards relevant to confined spaces
- Recommendations and advice for specialised PPE and equipment for your workplace
- Advice on risk control methods for the type of work to be undertaken
- Be at least 15 years of age
- Wear appropriate clothing, including long pants and closed in footwear
- Have at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills
- Have the ability to read and write English
For our public courses at our purpose built training facility trainees must provide:
- We supply all equipment necessary for you to undertake this training, however we actively encourage you to bring along your own equipment.
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.
Joel M. - Brisbane, QLDKleenduct Australia
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!
