ERGT Australia’s (RTO 2534) Undertake Confined Space Rescue (UCSR) course develops skills and knowledge on a number of topics which prepare participants to affect a rescue from a confined space. These topics are; prepare for confined space rescue operation, assess and manage confined space / trench rescue, determine location and condition of casualties, gain entry to confined space, remove casualties and conclude rescue operations.
This course is designed for personnel who are required to work as a member of an emergency response team and who are required to affect a rescue from a confined space.
LOCATIONS: Perth, Darwin & Melbourne
PRE-REQUISITES (attained within 4 years of training):
The following pre-requisites apply to fire sector specific participants, but do not apply to oil & gas emergency response team participants.
- PUASAR022A Participate in a rescue operation
- PUAFIR316 Identify, detect and monitor hazardous materials at an incident ERGT REQUIRED SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE:
- MSMPER205 Enter confined space
- PUAFIR207B Operate breathing apparatus open OR an AMSA Certificate of Proficiency in Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting
Following a confined space rescue theory session, course participants will undertake practical activities as team members in a confined space rescue. The team will conduct rescue plan rehearsals for different simulated confined spaces, some of which will be planned by participants in groups. This will be followed by simulated call-out practical activities based on the rehearsed rescue plans. The simulated confined space vessels have come from actual work locations but have been modified for the training environment to allow safe access. ELEMENTS OF COMPETENCY:
PUASAR025A Undertake confined space rescue
In alignment with industry expectations and to ensure ongoing competence and capability ERGT recommends skills maintenance be conducted every 2 years.
Upon successful completion trainees will be issued with a:
- Statement of Attainment in PUASAR025A Undertake confined space rescue
(Prepare for confined space rescue operation, assess and manage confined space/trench rescue, determine location and condition of casualties, gain entry to confined space, remove casualties, and conclude rescue operations.)
STRUCTURE & ASSESSMENT
using specialised equipment. Practical activities include such as simulate call-out practical activities based on the rehearsed rescue plans using simulated confined space vessels, as well as conduct a rescue plan rehearsals for different simulated confined spaces. Trainees will demonstrate their competence through direct observation, oral &/or written assessment & practical exercises.
