Confined Space Training Online (VOC Refresher RIIWHS202E)

Welcome to the Confined Spaces Verification of Competency (VOC) Training. This course will give you an understanding of the hazards associated with confined spaces, and the processes and equipment you should use to keep safe when entering and working in those spaces.

Features of this refresher training include:

- Download a VOC Certificate of Completion on successful completion

- A Digital Wallet ID VOC Card is also issued on successful completion (see John Citizen Sample)

- Verification of competency by our RTO partner, AlertForce RTO Code 91826.

Entry requirements:

1. You must upload 100 points of ID

2. You must upload a previously issued with a Statement of Attainment (or wallet card) by an RTO less than 3 years ago or be able to present a CV that demonstrates industry currency.

NOTE: this training is suitable as refresher if you have previously obtained a Unit of Competency in any of these qualifications:

  1. RIIWHS202E Enter and work in a confined space
  2. RIIWHS202D Enter and work in a confined space

We have other VOC's for 

  • MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit
  • MSAPMPER200C Work in accordance with an issued permit, and / or
  • MSMPER300 Issue Work Permits OR
  • MSAPMPER300C Issue Work Permits 
  •  

      This training addresses the theoretical component of confined space entry. It does not give you the practical skills required to enter a confined safely and as such is only applicable for refresher training not initial entry training.

      It is unlawful to instruct a person to enter a confined space if they have not completed in-person training with an accredited trainer. Obeying such an instruction could endanger your safety and the safety of those around you.

      This course will provide you with information about:

      1. the legal requirement for confined space entry
      2. what confined spaces are and why people enter them
      3. entry permits
      4. hazards associated with confined space entry
      5. methods of controlling confined space hazards
      6. emergency response procedures, and
      7. the different types of personal protective equipment that can be used when working in confined spaces

        This course has been reviewed by a recognised subject matter expert.

        It has been designed to comply with best practice national health and safety standards. Terminology has been chosen for clarity and ease of comprehension across jurisdictions. For example, ‘employer’ has been used to signify the broader term ‘PCBU’, while ‘WHS’ represents both work and occupational health and safety.

        ALTHOUGH BASED ON THE ELEMENTS, THIS IS NOT A NATIONALLY RECOGNISED COURSE. THIS VOC COURSE CAN ONLY TO BE USED FOR REFRESHER PURPOSES IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY ACHIEVED A STATEMENT OF ATTAINMENT.

        Note: Whilst a Statement of Attainments do not expire, different worksites have different policies and requirements of what refresher training should be and what is acceptable. Queensland sites, for example, typically want face to face only. You should check if you are unsure as there are no refunds available once you have downloaded certificates. This refresher course is a Verification of Competency undertaken by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 91826).

        If you have not previously done this course, to be deemed competent, you must complete an in-person training session an accredited trainer with a registered training organisation.

        What are confined spaces? Theoretical component of the competencies

        Confined spaces are defined as enclosed or partially enclosed spaces not intended or designed primarily for human occupancy. These spaces have a risk of:

        1. Toxic atmospheres
        2. Flammable atmospheres
        3. Oxygen Deficiency
        4. Excessive heat etc

            Activities and quizzes appear throughout the course and are part of your assessment. They must be successfully completed to complete the course.

            A Certificate of Completion is issued on successful completion of the course and you are required to get an 80% pass mark to be deemed as understanding the content. It is recommended that training is conducted every 2 years to stay refreshed.

              This course directly aligns with the RIIWHS202E unit of competency from the Australian Resources and Infrastructure Industry training package. It encapsulates all requisite skills and knowledge required to enter and work in confined spaces, making it the perfect choice for workers seeking to refresh their competency.

              Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a Verification of Competency (VOC) issued by our partner RTO AlertForce (Code 91826). This certificate is not nationally recognised, but is widely acceptable by many organisations as suitable refresher training, demonstrating that you have been deemed refreshed in the necessary skills and knowledge associated with confined space work. As part of the VOC process you are required to produce evidence of previous Nationally Recognised training and/or industry participation.

              The course includes an online assessment to verify your theoretical understanding and application of the training. The assessment has been designed to ensure that you meet all the theory requirements of the RIIWHS202E unit of competency (or previous equivalents).

              Participants are required to upload 100 points of ID and a previously issued Statement of Attainment (or wallet card) by an RTO not more than 3 years ago, or present a CV showcasing industry relevance.
              Prior completion of the RIIWHS202D or RIIWHS202E Enter and Work in Confined Spaces Training in a face-to-face setting is a prerequisite for this refresher course.

              After successfully completing the course and assessment, you'll receive a Verification of Competency as a certificate and also a Digital ID. This certificate serves as proof that you have refreshed your skills and are competent in working safely within confined spaces, as per the RIIWHS202E unit of competency guidelines.

              Student Reviews

              I completed my initial training a while ago, is this online course enough to update my skills and knowledge?

              Yes, this online VOC Refresher course (RIIWHS202E) is designed specifically to help individuals who have previously completed the face-to-face training to update their knowledge and practices in accordance with the latest best practice safety standards and regulations. You should have completed your face to face training course or refresher within the last 3 years and / or been a regular industry participant during that time

              How do I know this online course will be accepted by my employer?

              The course is aligned with the nationally recognised RIIWHS202E unit of competency, making it widely accepted across various industries. However, we recommend consulting with your employer or HR department to confirm before you enrol if you are in doubt.

              Can I take the assessment multiple times if I don't pass it the first time?
