City & Guilds Confined Space Entry Training Course
These are short course single unit qualifications developed from national occupational standards for confined spaces and supported by the HSE. They are available as water or non-water versions. They are available to suit various levels of risk and role in confined space entry.
6150-01Low Risk Confined Spaces Water – 1 day
A short course and assessment for low risk confined spaces in which the entrant will enter a low risk confined space, typically a space with simple unobstructed access, adequate ventilation and little risk of change to the environment e.g. meter pits, prv chambers etc.
6150-02 Medium Risk Confined Spaces Water – 2 days
A course and assessment in which entry will be to deep chambers, or may involve traverse work. Examples may include man entry sewers, manholes, utility service subway tunnels, aqueducts, complex wet wells etc. Work may involve being detached from the recovery systems and escape breathing apparatus may be required to aid exit in an emergency.
6150-03 High Risk Confined Spaces Water – 3 days
A course and assessment in which entry may be into confined spaces which due to the nature of the hazards require additional precautions, including the use of self-contained or airline breathing apparatus. Areas may require complex isolations or the work itself may introduce additional risks which require control measures not associated with other categories.
6150-05 Emergency Rescue & Recovery of Casualties From Confined Spaces Water – 3 days
A 3 day course and assessments for personnel who may form part of a rescue team for confined space work. A pre-requisite for this course is that the delegates must have attained a 6510-03 qualification before attending the rescue training.
NOTE: all the above can be run as non-water variants.
NOTE: Delegates should attend a refresher course every 3 years.
