RTO#45645

This course has been designed for individuals who work alone or as part of a team as an operator required to wear breathing apparatus in their work role. This might be because they are working in a confined space, with hazardous gases/vapours, or in an oxygen deficient atmosphere.

It covers the skills and knowledge required to conduct pre-donning checks and tests on breathing apparatus, operate and maintain breathing apparatus and equipment in an irrespirable atmosphere, and conclude operations as defined by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 1715:2009 Selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment.
