Confined Space Training & Certification

What do we offer? Whether you want confined space certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the confined space training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

What are my options for confined space training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It's a confined space training powerpoint (ppt) presentation used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer we offer a train the trainer online course.

Online Training

Confined space training online courses are for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign courses to employees. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Competent Person

Competent person training takes a more in-depth approach to safety on the job. These trainings cover everything regular employees are trained on plus any additional responsibilities placed on the competent person.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Confined Space Training Course?

Our Confined Spaces Safety Training course is built to regulation guidelines. This class discusses topics including basic equipment, confined spaces testing, safe operations, common hazards, rescue techniques, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.

Why do I need confined space training?

In line with regulations, anyone who works with confined spaces must receive training prior to working on their own. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that proves continued competency.

  • Did You Know?


  • From 1992 to 2005, there were 431 workers killed in confined space incidents.

  • One-fifth of confined space incidents result in multiple fatalities.

  • One-fourth of all confined spaces fatalities occur during regular repair, maintenance, cleaning, or inspection procedures. (Source: CSCC)
