CABWI level 2 Award working in medium risk confined spaces (2 days)
The CABWI Level 2 Award in Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces allows learners to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required by those who need to work in medium risk confined spaces as part of their job role.
This competence – based qualification covers the underpinning knowledge and practical skills required to work in medium risk confined spaces.
This qualification may be taken by any learner ages 16 or over, although it is recognised that employers may have different age requirements for their employees who work in confined spaces. As the qualification involves practical assessment in a confined space environment, centres must ensure that any learner undertaking the qualification is medically fit, in line with the current industry requirements.
