City and Guilds - Level 2 Award in Working in High Risk Confined Spaces (6150-53)

This course is aimed at anyone working in high risk confined spaces such as sewers, vessels, tanks and chambers, who need to use full respiratory protection such as self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing apparatus airlines due to an irrespirable environment.

Working in confined spaces exposes an individual to a multitude of potential hazards, some of which threaten injury and, in some instances, death. It follows then that specialist training and assessment is required to equip those undertaking work in these environments with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risks, control hazards and perform respective work in a safe mode.

With the collaboration of the Health & Safety Executive, Energy & Utility Skills (EU Skills), employers and the private training fraternity, new generic NOS for working in confined spaces were created, with emphasis on a risk-based approach to working in confined spaces. 

City & Guilds and CABWI, with a remit from EU Skills and Water UK, then developed the qualifications being delivered here within the suite of the 6150, initially with a water sector focus, but also now for any industry. For the first time qualifications for working in confined spaces are underpinned by NOS and therefore attest to competency in this health & safety critical discipline.

On successful completion of a respective 6150 qualification, employees and contractors alike will have an instantly recognisable qualification attesting to competence. Similarly, the qualification 

number 6150 with its context will provide employers with assurance that employees in this health and safety critical discipline have been assessed against the national standard.

Re-assessment of the 6150 is encouraged every three years for all candidates to ensure continuing competency for working in confined spaces.


All of the qualifications within the 6150 are stand-alone and, aside from the Emergency Rescue (6150-05 & 6150-55), there is no requirement to undertake any of them in any particular order. It is 

simply down to candidate and/or business requirements.

If the candidate is successful with the High Risk (6150-03 or 6150-55) then the competencies associated with Low Risk (6150-01 or 6150-51) and Medium Risk (6150-02 or 6150-52) are 

automatically conferred and candidates do not need to undertake these qualifications, though they may want to.

If a candidate is successful with the Low Risk (6150-01 or 6150-51) then they will need to progress through the Medium Risk (6150-02 or 6150-52) and High Risk (6150-03 or 6150-53) to be deemed competent in those risk levels.

A candidate wishing to be assessed on the Emergency Rescue (6150-05 or 6150-55) is required to have successfully completed the High Risk (6150-03 or 6150-53) and hold a valid certificate. It will be the centre’s responsibility to ensure that this is the case, as per standard quality assurance, centres have a responsibility to perform an initial assessment to ensure candidates have retained the required level of knowledge from 6150-03/53. 

How is it assessed?

Continued assessment process with final written question paper and practical assessment leading to City and Guilds accredited certification on successfully passing.

City and Guilds - Level 3 Award in Emergency Rescue and Recovery of Casualties in Confined Spaces :Water (6150 05/55)

Those who work in or want to work in a confined space rescue team would find this course beneficial for their ability to carry out the tasks set out in their job role. Also, people who have other confined space job roles would benefit from studying this training course. 

Every confined space team should have dedicated team members who are responsible for the safe rescue and recovery of those who fall victim to accidents within a hazardous environment.

This course delivers the necessary skills, knowledge and practical work for these professionals to act quickly in the event of an accident, use equipment effectively and gives candidates the tools necessary to maintain safety of all people involved within a rescue situation.

Although rescue of someone trapped in a confined space is often of the highest priority, it is important for rescue professionals to be protected in order to ensure they are not also affected by the same hazard that caused the accident in the first place. By attending this course candidates will learn about how to avoid these dangers and safely rescue those within the confined space without posing a risk to themselves.
