City and Guilds Level 2 Award in Entrant and Entry controller 6160-09

Confined spaces present a myriad of challenges and hazards that demand specialised training to ensure safety and competence. The City and Guild’s Level 2 Award in Entrant and Entry Controller for Confined Spaces (6160-09) is designed for entrants and entry controllers who operate in medium-risk confined spaces. The training will equip delegates with the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely in medium-risk confined space areas, and also act as entry controller for the operation.
