Staff who are involved in operations involving confined spaces, which may vary from simple open trenches to complicated multi-level entries.

In-house programmes are available, but the City & Guilds option is for those who must hold this formal qualification as a contractual requirement.

Matrix offer various routes to suit candidates with all levels of experience:

Route 1 Full training and assessment courses - for candidates with little or no experience.
Route 2 Revision/Assessment (APL) courses - Our most popular route for those who know the subject but require 'some revision' before assessment.
Route 3 Assessment events - For those who feel they are fully trained and experienced sufficiently to undertake assessment.

Water UK classes confined spaces as follows:
NC1 - Low risk entry with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation, where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding.
NC2 - Vertical direct unobstructed access with continuous attachment to a man riding hoist or similar mechanical rescue device.
NC3 - When it is not possible to have persons permanently attached to a safety line. Usually it will be a team entry which moves away from the entry point e.g. Man entry sewers, utility service subway tunnels, aqueducts and complex wet wells. Working without an attached rescue line and includes working away from the point of entry.
NC4 - Non standard entries involving complex operations which introduce additional risks and require specific controls and rescue arrangements e.g. mechanical hazards, physical complexity of system introduced hazards, enhanced specific intrinsic hazards.


Depends on Units and option route chosen.
