The Australian Well Control Centre’s Nationally Accredited, Gas Test Atmospheres Program is aimed at providing participants with the knowledge and skills to safely negotiate testing an Atmosphere and deeming it safe to enter. The program utilises Electronic Gas Detectors (Microclip X3 Multi Gas Detectors) to identify toxins or low oxygenated environments. This information empowers our candidates to make critical decisions regarding the hazards they have encountered within a space, what risk controls need to be implemented and how to proceed with the work safely.
The Gas Test Atmospheres (GTA) course runs sequentially with our Enter and work in confined spaces Program RIIWHS202E which has been specifically designed for individuals that work across multiple 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.
Both of these courses are run weekly, every Tuesday starting at 8am. Combining your GTA course with the Ener and Work in Confined Spaces program for an additional $265 AUD reduces the need for return training on separate days. Having these programs offered sequentially reduces the amount of operational down time for training staff. Getting both of these core units completed on the one day along with receiving the extra bonus units listed below 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.

The events above will be discussed in more detail in the AWCC Gas Test Atmospheres program. All workers should be aware that toxic gasses are the silent killers and when tasked to work within these environments, they can be deadly. The Team at AWCC know this all to well with our instructors having a wide range of industry experiences and knowledge that they enthusiastically pass onto students. Knowledge saves lives and having a clear plan regarding how to work and on occasion survive these potentially dangerous situations is the AWCC point of difference.
