Breathing Apparatus Training
This breathing apparatus training covers the skills and knowledge required to operate and maintain breathing apparatus and equipment in an irrespirable atmosphere, as defined by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 1715:2009 Selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment, which includes SCBA.
This unit applies to operators who are required to wear respiratory protection equipment (RPE) because they are working:
- in a confined space
- with hazardous gases/vapours
- in an oxygen deficient atmosphere
- in high heat environments
- where there is smoke
- where there is a fire
- in other situations requiring the wearing of RPE is required.
Operators may also be required to wear SCBA in emergency situations, however, this is not the prime focus of this training.
This training course applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team or group and working in liaison with other shift team members and the control room operator, as appropriate.
Training duration will vary from course to course.
Pricing is based on group number and amount of training days required.
