Whether it’s new courses, new accreditations or changes to existing training suites, the world of confined space training never stands still, so we wanted to share an update with the latest changes and news.

Launch of new Competent Person (CP) courses: Alpha courses for CP1 and CP2 (for Thames Water Contractors)

We have launched our own set of courses to assist Thames Water Contractors with their specific requirements.

CP1 Thames Water

(Competent Person Level 1) A person who has successfully completed the training and assessment for working in and escaping from confined spaces and has been appointed by their line manager as being competent. CP1 can only work in confined spaces under supervision of a CP2. This will be the equivalent to Medium risk.

CP2 Thames Water

(Competent Person Level 2) A person who has successfully completed the training and been formally assessed as suitably competent for working and carrying out emergency rescues. CP1 training must have been completed and have included breathing apparatus and CP must have been appointed by their manager as being competent. This will be the equivalent of a High Risk/Rescue and Recovery level.
