Gas Testing Training Programme

The aim and objectives of the Gas Testing training programme are to ensure that personnel preparing for a gas tester role are equipped with the knowledge to conduct gas tests for oxygen levels, flammable and toxic gases safely. Their gas testing skills must be assessed either in the workplace or at an approved training centre against the competence units specified in Section E of this standard.

This training programme also equips the delegate with the knowledge to conduct gas testing within confined spaces and awareness of associated confined space hazards. Delegates will also learn about relevant legislative requirements, gas measuring and monitoring equipment and document gas test results.
