Advanced Confined Space Training Overview


This 4 day advanced confined space training is a premium course designed for those wanting to get involved in standby rescue, become a rescue technician or develop existing rescue skills as a dedicated team member of an Emergency Response Team (ERT).

We MAX the course at 8 students so we can give individual attention as needed, to enable you or your team to be confident and proficient as members of a rescue team.

If you’re serious about rescue, this is the course for you. It will be hard, intense, make you think on your feet or on your belly.

You know what they say good training isn’t cheap and cheap training isn’t good.
