Enter Confined Space with Breathing Apparatus Refresher

1 Day

Max Students:

Designed for:
Designed for students who have been previously trained in both confined space and breathing apparatus units of competency.

Students must already hold confined space and breathing apparatus competencies that are no older than 3 years.


Pre-entry Requirements:
To be eligible for refresher training, students must have completed confined space and breathing apparatus training within the last 3 years. This training requires a degree of physical activity.

This course is designed for students who are required to be re-assessed in entering a confined space with breathing apparatus, for maintenance purposes, for cleaning, inspection or other reasons. It is required by all students who are required to enter a confined space, as defined by the standard AS2865 requires reassessment 'at appropriate intervals'. The industry regards reassessment on a two to three year cycle as good practice.


All attendees will need to bring along your current ticket / card on the day for the trainer to sight to confirm you hold the competencies.

The following content will be revised during the training:

  • Access and interpret information relevant to specific tasks (eg labels, MSDSs hazchem signs)
  • Access and apply hazard controls
  • Describe and/or explain hazards associated with tasks covered by the permit, types of tests required for the issue of work permits - the types of tests to include, atmospheric/oxygen/ breathability, flammability/explosivity, toxicity/TWA, temperature, humidity
  • Interpret and respond to gas test/monitoring results/information
  • Identify a change in work conditions, possible new hazards and so the required hazard controls and obtain revalidation of permit
  • Confined space entry procedures
  • Operate breathing apparatus

Units of Competency

MSMPER205 Enter confined space

MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit

RIIWHS202D Enter and work in confined spaces

MSMWHS217 Gas test atmospheres

MSMWHS216 Operate breathing apparatus

The assessment process will occur through a combination of theoretical and practical assessment.

Delivery Method:
Competency confirmation will be achieved through 2 hours of theory revision, followed by a theory assessment. Following theory assessment students will be revised in confined space entry procedures involving the use of Breathing Apparatus.
