Assessment Methods
 
Written theory assessment with multiple choice and short answer questions. Requires 100% pass mark for competency.
 
If a candidate gets a total score of less than 100% then the trainer will explore the learners’ knowledge of the topic. Where the candidate has a good knowledge of the topic the result may be amended.
 
Practical assessment requires the learners to correctly perform pre-use inspection requirements, correct donning techniques and all post operational checks and procedures for breathing apparatus.
 
Perform practical confined space rescue exercises using breathing apparatus.
 
During the course of the training learners will be continually verbally assessed by the trainer to ensure they have the required understanding and competency required on specific topics and scenarios.
 
Training Outcome
 
All successful learners will receive a Statement of Attainment and a personalised ID card as proof of their qualification.
