Level 1 Confined Spaces Awareness (VTQ)

CPD Certified Training Approved by Skills for Care

This short level 1 course raises the awareness of working in a confined space and identifies the potential dangers that could exist.

Currently, the course is available as a classroom course and in summer 2017 it will be launched as a video e-learning course. Once the online course is live it will then be available as a blended course.
