This one day Direct Emergency Rescue & Recovery of Casualties from Confined Spaces training course is for anyone who directs the activities of a team for rescue or recovery in confined spaces. This may include rescue team leader, coordinator, entry controller/top person or supervisor in relation to rescue and recovery of casualties, planning and preparing for emergency operations, mobilising rescue teams, directing and monitoring rescue activities, reporting and securing sites after incidents or emergencies.

Delegates attending this course must hold valid High Risk and Rescue & Recovery certificates (which must be City & Guilds if they wish to do the City & Guilds accreditation).

Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language. 

This Level 3 Direct Emergency Rescue & Recovery of Casualties from Confined Spaces course is taught via demonstrations, lectures and practical learning. 

Topics covered on this course include:

  • Plan and prepare emergency operations for rescue teams
  • Mobilise a rescue team and direct entry and exit to the confined space
  • Monitor a rescue team to ensure procedures are followed
  • Understand the principles of working as rescue team leader
  • Understand rescue team leader duties and responsibilities

This course is taught by highly experienced instructors. All our trainers have worked in hazardous environments – so they understand the issues and working conditions a delegate may face at work.

Many of our trainers are also real-life rescuers who have been part of emergency operations in the UK and around the world.

Candidates can choose to receive an MRS Training & Rescue certificate or for an additional fee, a City & Guilds certificate.

The MRS Training & Rescue certification aligns with the City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Direct Emergency Rescue and Recovery of Casualties from Confined Spaces (6160-07).

The training course will conclude with a written test and a practical assessment. On successful completion of the course, candidates will receive either an MRS or a City and Guilds 6160 Certificate.

Certification lasts for 3 years.
