This course is accredited to the OPITO Authorised Gas Tester standard and has been designed to equip delegates with the knowledge to conduct gas testing within confined spaces and awareness of associated confined hazards. The authorised gas tester role is critical in testing for and ensuring safe working atmospheres, in particular: permit-controlled confined spaces, and prior to and during hot work.
Our course has been developed in bitesize learning chunks for each topic. At the end of each unit, there will be an assessment. Delegates will need to pass each module at 80 percent or above. When you pass the course, you will be issued with a certificate which is valid for 3 years.
The aim of this course is to teach you the requirements associated with gas detection. On successful completion, you will have the basic knowledge necessary to allow you to operate as an Authorised Gas Tester. You will be given two attempts at each module, and you must score 80 percent to pass.
