Participants must have completed a Nationally Accredited Confined Space Entry course and either PUAEME001B - Provide emergency care or HLTFA211A - Provide basic emergency life support. A Current Senior First Aid Certificate is sufficient. Evidence is required prior to course.

All participants are required to be Medically Fit & Clean Shaven and to bring Safety Boots, Hard Hat, Overalls and gloves.
(Note: Participants are required to be clean shaven to enable a positive seal whilst wearing SCBA equipment as per AS/NZS 1715) Correct fit of a mask requires contact with smooth skin - this makes masks unsuitable for persons with beards or moustaches. Even a one day growth of a beard has been shown to allow nearly one per cent penetration of a full face-piece.
