Level 2 Award in Tunnel Entry and Associated Emergency Procedures Course (TEEPS – City & Guilds 6151-02)

We are now able to offer the following courses, either at one of our training centres or at your premises:

  • Tunnelling Safety Training Scheme (TSTS) card, accredited by the CITB
  • Level 2 Award in Tunnel Entry and Associated Emergency Procedures (TEEPS – City & Guilds 6151-02) - for those who already have their TSTS card and require this additional training

We can run each on consecutive days at your premesis and we offer a discount when booking both courses.


Our tunnel entry course is for candidates who work or would like to work in the tunnelling industry - during construction phases. This can include cut and cover tunnelling, immersed tube tunnels and other forms of underground construction, maintenance, renovation and repair of shafts.

The Tunnel Entry and Emergency Procedures course covers safe entry and associated emergency procedures and is designed for those looking for a safety card or ticket.

Candidates will learn how to safely carry out work where there may be a foreseeable specified risk, including the correct use of tools and equipment. Participants will achieve their qualification by a combination of theoretical and practical sessions.

This is a highly practical course. We have City & Guilds approved mobile confined space training units to deliver the TEEPS course at your premises.

The course incorporates lectures, demonstration and practical work, where learners will enter and work in a simulated tunnel environment. Candidates will complete a written test on knowledge of tunnels and confined spaces, and a practical assessment of their ability to safely enter and work in tunnels, recognise that an emergency has occurred, and escape an exit tunnel safely.

Delegates will be continually assessed throughout the course with short multiple-choice written papers to measure attainment of objectives.
