This Tunnel Entry and Associated Emergency Procedures (TEEP) course is for those who work or would like to work in the tunnelling industry. This course is suitable for cut and cover tunnelling, immersed tube tunnels and other forms of underground construction, maintenance, renovation and shaft repairs.

This course covers the safe entry and associated emergency procedures specific to working in a tunnel construction environment and is designed for those who require a safety card or ticket.

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. 

We also provide CITB accredited 1-day Tunnelling Safety Training Scheme (TSTS) and can run this and the TEEP course on consecutive days at your premises. We offer a discount when booking both courses to run at your premises.

This TEEP course is highly practical and delegates are continually assessed throughout the course. On the course, delegates will learn how to safely carry out work where there may be a foreseeable specified risk, including the correct use of tools and equipment.

This course is a combination of lectures, demonstrations and practical sessions. Practical sessions take place in purpose-built simulated tunnel environments.

After completing this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Prepare to work safely in confined spaces in tunnels and shafts
  • Enter and exit safely
  • Use escape respiratory protective equipment in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications
  • Use equipment and tools safely and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions
  • Follow appropriate procedures and work safely
  • Respond correctly and appropriately to emergency situations
  • Understand procedures for working safely in tunnels and shafts
  • Understand how to comply with relevant industry standards for working in tunnels and shafts

“Luke and Leo were very helpful throughout the training course and showed that they both have brilliant knowledge in their field of expertise. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to be trained in confined spaces.” Alex Clinch

“Excellent course. The practical mock-up confined space facility was good and gave us chance to practice what we had been taught. The assessor was firm but didn't make us feel under pressure, and so were able to perform to the best of our ability while being assessed.” W.P.

“MRS Training & Rescue are a great training provider who I have used many times over the years. Always professional, helpful and friendly, I would not hesitate in recommending MRS to others.” Surf Mickey
