Confined Spaces


Our purpose built confined space training complex, opened in 2010 and has provided simulated training experience to over 5000 workers.

The realistic training that our confined space site provides can be delivered under either the City & Guilds awarding body or your own ‘in-house’ certificate.

Theoretical elements can be delivered anywhere – however the practical side of our courses do have to be delivered at a none operational site.

We deliver three levels of confined space training, Low Risk, Medium Risk and High Risk in water and non-water industries as well as Managing/Supervising Confined Space and Emergency Rescue and Recovery.
