Course Aim

This course aims to educate delegates with material that reflects the national occupational standard (NOS) for a low-risk related confined space environment – the NC1 classification.

A reasonably physically demanding course, a high proportion of the learning and assessment is practical exercises, including confined space entry. The practical elements are then supplemented with classroom-based tutorials to prepare delegates for a final examination of their learnings.

Our course-specific trainers will take delegates through the process to finish with a practical observation and short answer question paper assessment, of which they must pass both to gain the qualification.

  • Understand the relevant and current low-risk confined space legislation
  • Recognise and classify a low-risk confined space
  • Produce safe systems of work for entry into low-risk confined spaces
  • Know how to correctly and safely use atmospheric monitoring equipment
  • Recognise diseases and understand the necessary personal hygiene requirements associated with low-risk confined spaces
