Refresher or Custom Confined Space Training Course

A refresher or custom course may benefit anyone who has already completed an NZQA confined space course because it can have a more specific training approach.

Instead of going over already learnt information, a refresher or custom course allows the time to be better spent concentrating on the specific needs of the workplace and the workers.

We can expand on the basic topics covered and train in other areas, for example:

  • Rescue scenarios
  • Pulley systems
  • Breathing apparatus
  • Gasses and the way they separate
  • Ventilation and exhaust
  • First aid or medical intervention

With a custom course you are not limited to a specific timeframe, topics or program. The course content can be tailored to your specific requirements. You will be expanding your knowledge based on the foundation knowledge you already have.

A custom course can be designed uniquely for you and it starts with a consult so we can understand your needs and come up with the best learning program.

Duration and course size
The duration and maximum numbers of people on the course will depend on your requirements and the complexity of the course content. We prioritise keeping everyone safe and maximising the best learning environment. A good instructor to student ratio is important especially if you would like to run through complex situations.

Our teaching style

Some people learn more effectively with verbal, written or visual teaching, others are more practical and learn by doing.

At the outset of each course we make an assessment on what type of learner each student is and then teach the course in a way that maximises learning and retention.

It's taken over a decade of experience to hone this method and it works very well for most students.

After Care

We're there for you after the course has been delivered to answer any questions that you may have. We welcome emails or phone calls, sometimes we even have people sending photos to explain a question. Whatever it is, we are here to help.
