Frequently Asked Questions

We are committed to providing approved training courses in vital skills at an affordable price. The cost of our courses and bundle offers reflect that commitment.

It is not our place to tell you when you must retrain people. Employers must decide themselves on the basis of risk and guidance provided by the regulator. That said, because the cost of online training is so cost effective, most of our customers retrain their employees every year.

Awareness training, such as this course, helps to identify and reduce the main risks associated with confined spaces. But it is likely that learners will require additional context-specific information, instruction, training or supervision given the unique nature of the organisation, their role within it, the tasks they perform and the environment in which they operate.
