This is how all training should be done. Highly efficient with small classes and a relaxed training environment. The trainers Bradyn and Finisi are extremely knowledgeable with a great attitude and teaching style, able to keep things flowing while ensuring no one gets left behind. The facilities and gear are excellent, really well set up. Anasani made the Bookings/ payments stress free ! One of the best RTO's I've trained at! Thanks again

RIIWHS202E Confined Space Training Courses

RIIWHS202E – Confined Space Ticket Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to enter and work in confined spaces in the resources and infrastructure industries.

It applies to those working in operational roles. They generally work under supervision to undertake a prescribed range of functions involving known routines and procedures and take responsibility for the quality of work outcomes.

Licensing, legislative and certification requirements that apply to this unit can vary between states, territories and industry sectors. Users must check requirements with relevant body before applying the unit.

Note: The terms Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Work Health and Safety (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the National Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including evidence of the ability to:

  • enter and work in confined spaces on at least two occasions, including:
    • obtaining the required entry permit and instructions for performing work in confined spaces
    • interpreting and applying workplace procedures
    • applying tagging and lock out procedures
    • selecting, wearing and caring for personal protective equipment
    • using atmospheric monitoring devices prior to entering the confined space
    • entering the confined space
    • working in the confined space
    • using atmospheric monitoring devices during confined space activity
    • applying safe materials handling methods
    • exiting the confined space
    • removing tagging and lock out

During the above, the candidate must:

  • locate and apply relevant legislation, documentation, policies and procedures and confirm that the work activity is compliant
  • implement the requirements, procedures and techniques for entering and working in confined spaces
  • work effectively with others to enter and work in confined spaces in a way that meets all required outcomes
  • communicate clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions and to determine coordination requirements prior to commencing and during work activities

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including knowledge of:

  • key legislation relevant to enter and work in confined spaces
  • key policies, procedures and documentation required to enter and work in confined spaces, including:
    • entry and exit procedures, risks and regulations
    • site and equipment safety requirements
    • site isolation and site control responsibilities and authorities
    • safety data sheets
    • incidents and emergency response documentation
  • principles and techniques for identifying and responding to:
    • areas that constitute confined spaces
    • types of air contaminants and toxic gases
    • limitations of breathing apparatus
    • relevant hazards and emergencies
  • equipment types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
  • principles and techniques for using confined space and industry terminology
  • techniques for coordinating and communicating job activities with others.

Mandatory conditions for assessment of this unit are stipulated below. The assessment must:

include access to:
personal protective equipment
equipment related to entering and working in confined spaces
relevant documentation
be conducted in a safe environment; and,
be assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment; and,
be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures and processes directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed; and,
confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances

Where personal health and safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated work environment* provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills.

Assessor Requirements

Assessors must be able to clearly demonstrate current and relevant industry knowledge and experience to satisfy the mandatory regulatory standards as set out in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/Australian Quality Training Framework mandatory requirements for assessors current at the time of assessment and any relevant licensing and certification requirements. This includes:

vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed
current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided
current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment
formal relevant qualifications in training and assessment
having knowledge of and/or experience using the latest techniques and processes
possessing the required level of RII training product knowledge
having an understanding and knowledge of legislation and regulations relevant to the industry and to employment and workplaces
demonstrating the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence outlined in this unit of competency, and
the minimum years of current** work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below in an industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit.

It is also acceptable for the appropriately qualified assessor to work with an industry expert to conduct assessment together and for the industry expert to be involved in the assessment judgement. The industry expert must have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided. This means the industry subject matter expert must demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed:

Industry sector AQF indicator level*** Required assessor or industry subject matter expert experience
Drilling, Metalliferous Mining, Coal Mining, Extractive (Quarrying) and Civil Infrastructure11 year
22 years
Drilling, Coal Mining, Extractive (Quarrying), Metalliferous Mining and Civil Infrastructure
3-63 years
Other sectors
Where this unit is being assessed outside of the resources and infrastructure sectors assessor and/or industry subject matter expert experience should be in-line with industry standards for the sector in which it is being assessed and where no industry standard is specified should comply with any relevant regulation.

*Guidance on simulated environments has been stipulated in the Companion Volume Implementation Guide located on VETNet.

**Assessors can demonstrate current work experience through employment within industry in a role relevant to the outcomes of the unit; or, for external assessors this can be demonstrated through exposure to industry by conducting a minimum number of site assessments as determined by the relevant industry sector, across various locations.

*** While a unit of competency does not have an AQF level, where a unit is being delivered outside of a qualification the first numeric character in the unit code should be considered as the AQF indicator level for assessment purposes.
