Additional Course Details

Mobile training unit

Our innovative City & Guilds approved mobile confined space training and assessment units allow us to bring confined space training to life, at your location. Theory can cover aspects specific to your needs to deal with confined space situations, but it doesn’t necessarily set people up for real-life situations - this is why we offer our fully equipped mobile training unit service. We’re able to tow our units to your site and duplicate enclosed space conditions and situations that your team are likely to face. The realistic restricted space includes multiple areas of entry (with 3.1m vertical entry) and crawl paths (30m) to create separation to train and assess communication between team members.

Our training courses and competence assessments comply with all up to date legislations and the requirements of the confined space National Occupational Standards that are referred to in the confined space regulations.

We offer low-risk (example meter readers and simple access) confined space training courses and competence assessments from our mobile units; participants are provided the opportunity to enrol on City and Guilds examinations. Participants who complete an assessment will be awarded with a City & Guilds approved certification, which is valid for three years after completion.
