Breathing Apparatus: Full Working Set training course

Course code: BA1  |  View training area

A 1 day training course for persons who need to gain an understanding of full working set breathing apparatus, particularly those who have been nominated to enter high risk confined spaces or act as rescue team members. The course is particularly relevant to newly appointed team members who have no prior experience of full working set breathing apparatus. Delegates must be fit to wear breathing apparatus and would generally be clean shaven (your employer will most likely insist on you being clean shaven in your workplace so you can make an effective seal on the mask).
