The Australian Well Control Centre Enter and Work in Confined Spaces Program has been specifically designed for individuals that work across multiple of industries. Confined spaces are everywhere, and it is critical that workers know how to test atmospheres and work effectively in confined spaces. Confined spaces are Hazardous and need to be treated with the highest level of safety awareness.
AWCC in order to generate greater value for our clients have clustered several common industry units of competency into our program. Successful participants of our Enter and Work in Confined Spaces course will also receive the following bonus certificates at no additional cost.
The Enter and Work in Confined Spaces is run weekly, every Tuesday (8am) in conjunction with our Gas Test Atmospheres Program (GTA) MSMWHS217. For an additional $150 AUD, AWCC recommend combining your Ener and Work in Confined Spaces course with the GTA program to reduce the need for return training on separate days. Having these programs offered sequentially reduces the amount of operational down time for training. Getting both core units completed on the one day along with receiving the extra bonus units above presents great value and is an exclusive product offering brought to you by the Australian Well Control Centre.
Industry best practice under WHS guidelines suggests that testing an atmosphere before entering the confined space to work is critical to maintaining safety standards and most importantly the safety of site personnel.
