This course delivers the necessary skills, knowledge and practical work for these professionals to act quickly in the event of an accident, use equipment effectively and gives candidates the tools necessary to maintain safety of all people involved within a rescue situation.
Although rescue of someone trapped in a confined space is often of the highest priority, it is important for rescue professionals to be protected in order to ensure they are not also affected by the same hazard that caused the accident in the first place. By attending this course candidates will learn about how to avoid these dangers and safely rescue those within the confined space without posing a risk to themselves.
