PUASAR025 - Undertake Confined Space Rescue
This accredited course is a unit that provides learners with the opportunity to gain experience in realistic confined space rescue operations across a range of scenarios.

The unit is applicable to a range of confined space rescue situations undertaken by personnel from the emergency services, volunteer organizations and/or organizations where confined space work is performed. It provides the knowledge along with the practical training to operate a range of rescue equipment and techniques for the safe extraction of injured or ill persons from a confined space.
The skills in this course are applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian/New Zealand standards and industry codes of practice. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
