Course Overview

CS04 (Breathe Safety Ltd Accredited)
Our CS04 course equips delegates with the knowledge, skills and practical experience to perform rescue operations in a confined space environment. It starts with looking at medium and high risk confined spaces and the option to use working breathing apparatus before progressing into technical rescue and casualty care.

City & Guilds 6150-05
This course covers everything outlined in our CS04 course and provides delegates with a nationally recognised confined space rescue qualification. The 6150-05 course is followed by a full day’s assessment of theoretical and practical knowledge by an assessor and to City & Guilds criteria.

PLEASE NOTE: City & Guilds written paper requires ability to read and answer examination in English in exam conditions. We require proof of basic life preservation/first aid courses (also available).

All our instructors are fully qualified assessors, trained first aiders and have expert industry knowledge. Both courses provide successful delegates with a qualification that is valid for three years.
