City & Guilds Accredited Programme


High Risk Confined Space Training Overview

Our City and Guilds Accredited High-Risk Confined Space  Training guarantees delegates leave with an esteemed level of knowledge and confidence. The additional day provides learners with the skills to work safely in a high-risk environment through hands-on experience. This is gained through practising with actual equipment used within a high risk confined space.

The delegate will learn the Low to Medium Risk Confined Space course content on day 1 to prepare them for day 2, where they will explore high-risk environments. Similarly to the Medium Risk Training, the Confined Space High-Risk Training will contain both classroom and practical experience. This focuses on trainer explanation, group discussions, videos, practical classroom exercises and a team practical within a confined space trailer unit.

Learners will gain practical experience wearing a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). Most importantly, this helps them understand how to plan for a high-risk rescue and ensure safety measures are followed at all times. Overall, delegates will successfully complete the course with an assured level of practical knowledge. As a result, they can handle any high-risk situation and use specialist equipment correctly.
