Firefighter Confined Space Entry & Rescue Training


Fatal accidents do happen while employees working at confined spaces or during rescue operations because of insufficiently trained workers and rescue personnel who lack knowledge on potential hazards at confined spaces or not having well-planned rescue operation in place.

Our online Firefighter Confined Space Entry course is extremely useful for confined entry workers, rescue personnel and supervisors. The course intends to provide participants with clear understanding on hazard identification and safe rescue operation procedures, prescribed safety standards and execution methods.

Governing regulations

This online safety training has been designed to satisfy OSHA regulation – 29 CFR § 1910.146 Confined Spaces Standard.

Course Overview

Working at confined space and rescue operations require deep understanding of safety standard and professional skills for safe evacuation. This highly valued international safety course provides the overview of OSHA regulations which deal with safe entry and rescue procedures, confined spaces permit-required and non-permit required parameters, types of hazards workers face at confined spaces, entry planning, usages of protective equipment, and different stages of confined space rescue operations.

Who Must Take this Course?

This training is necessary for all firefighters, supervisors and managers of confined space entries, entry and rescue staff and assistants who frequently enter and exit confined spaces for assisting workers but do not remain there for long. Also, newly recruit workers must undergo this training before take up the task to work at confined spaces.

Course Format

Our Firefighter Confined Space Entry and Rescue Training course has been made with well-planned content having latest inputs for enhanced knowledge, case studies, audio and visual representation of concepts and self-test questions for better performance in the final exam.

Every successful candidate will be provided with hard copy of completion certificate along with a wallet card.
