Learn how to operate breathing apparatus so that you can safely enter and work in confined spaces that contain an irrespirable atmosphere. Participants will engage in the operation and maintenance of breathing apparatus equipment as defined by AS/NZS 1715:2009.

Operate Breathing Apparatus is a course aimed at those that work in confined spaces that are likely to contain hazardous gases and vapours or are oxygen deficient. As the breathing apparatus requires a seal to be made around your mouth, participants must be clean shaven in order to take part in the course.
