City & Guilds Confined Space Training Courses

Every year a number of people are killed or seriously injured due to working in confined spaces, often because they are unaware of the dangers, poorly trained or do not have the correct safety equipment.

For those required to enter confined spaces, we provide a range of courses that can cover Safe Entry & Escape Breathing Apparatus; Full Breathing Apparatus; and Oxygen Resuscitation. These City & Guilds confined space training courses are designed to suit those that require specific training for areas where space might be limited.

In-depth confined space training for supervisors and managers

For managers and supervisors we provide a 1 day City & Guilds Confined Spaces Awareness and Risk Assessment programme. This ensures you are well equipped with the knowledge to supervise and manage projects that are in confined spaces without the risk of injury or death. Ensuring that you learn from the best is extremely important and that's exactly what you'll get with our City & Guilds Confined Space training courses.

Our City & Guilds confined space training courses are recognised by most major organisations and we have a purpose built underground facility that can be accessed via the training room. We provide all of the specialised equipment required for the courses and can provide on-site courses for groups of staff anywhere in Hampshire and Berkshire, including Portsmouth, Windsor, Slough, Eastleigh, Southampton, Andover, Eastleigh, Reading, Winchester, Wokingham, Basingstoke, Hungerford, Newbury, Maidenhead, and Padworth.

Note: An advance copy of your own safe system of work for entry into confined spaces will enable us to take account of this as part of the course. If you have equipment which your delegates are familiar with, please bring it along for the exercises (tested and in good working order), otherwise the necessary equipment will be provided.

Upon completion of the training course

On successful completion of the practical exercise and the multi-choice assessment sheet, (and provision of an appropriate up to date medical for Full BA candidates), a Credit Card size Confined Space ID card confirming attendance will be issued.

The City & Guilds Confined Space training code of practice is approved for the purposes of providing practical guidance with respect to the requirements of the Confined Spaces Regulations and other relevant legislation. The code of practice makes several references to training including the following - Those likely to be involved in any emergency rescue should be trained for that purpose. The training needs for each individual will vary according to their designated role. It is important that refresher training is organised and available on a regular basis.
