What is confined space training?

A confined space is an enclosed or partially enclosed area not designed or intended primarily to be occupied by a person, such as a tank, vessel, silo, manhole or ductwork. To enter a confined space and perform work safely, you need to hold a current confined space qualification.

How often is confined space refresher training required?

As a nationally-recognised unit of competency, our training does not expire. However, for your own safety and as industry recommendation, you should renew and re-complete your Confined Space Training every 2 years. This ensures you stay current.

How much is confined space training?

To get your confined space ticket you must do a training course. Fees vary. To enquire how much a full 1 day course cost, contact us for a quote. If you need to renew/refresh your confined space qualification, we can also quote on a tailored refresher course. All courses are exempt from GST.

Who needs a confined space ticket?

Any worker who will be working in a confined space or supervise confined space work and is required to use a permit, monitor gas levels or wear breathing apparatus must hold a confined space ticket.

What is the difference between confined space and gas test atmosphere training?

These are two separate training courses for two separate tasks. As such, they can be completed individually. Each allows for a different range of employment opportunities. However, you may also choose to take both training courses to further improve your employment options:

  • Enter And Work In Confined Space Training (RIIWHS202D): The Confined Spaces Training course is designed to teach individuals to safely enter, function and work within a confined space. 
  • Gas Test Atmospheres Training (MSMWHS217): The Gas Test Atmospheres Training course teaches participants the necessary skills to test and sample hazardous environments

Has the Confined Space Training course been affected by COVID-19?

Good news: COVID-19 has not stopped our training. At KI Training & Assessing, the Confined Space Training Course – as well as our other training courses – are still running as scheduled.

However, due to government-mandated social-distancing measures, we have adjusted our class sizes and relocated to a larger facility. By taking these measures, we can obey the 1 person per 4 square-metres rule.

Further, we have taken steps to ensure our employees are maintaining personal hygiene, while also keeping our facility clean. As such, we sanitise our training centre top to bottom twice a day to help keep our staff, you and your classmates safe.
