Medium Risk Confined Space Training Course (City & Guilds, CITB, Lantra and EU Skills approved)

MRS Training & Rescue are experts in confined spaces and offer a range of highly practical courses suitable for all industries.

The two day Medium Risk Confined Spaces course will teach candidates how to work safely in medium risk confined spaces. It will require the use of escape breathing apparatus. It will involve the presence of one or more people - positioned outside the confined space - who have designated responsibilities for controlling the entry and dealing with emergencies (see national occupational standards units for overseeing work in confined spaces or emergency rescue and recovery of casualties from confined spaces). Entry to the confined space may involve:

  • vertical entry normally using a ladder or man-riding winch, both requiring fall protection and means of assisted rescue such as a rescue winch
  • horizontal entry such as walking or climbing into the confined space or working away from the bottom of a vertical entry, with limited use of a rescue line. Such types of entry may involve more than one person entering the confined space.

The course is approximately 40% theory and 60% practical and concludes with a written test and a practical assessment. Upon successful completion, delegates receive either an MRS Training & Rescue certificate or City & Guilds 6150 qualification, valid for 3 years.

This course is also approved by CITB, Lantra and EU Skills.
