About the Course

Confined Space Rescue: Operations is the second course available in our Confined Space Rescue Series. This course will provide you with the theory to operate at the NFPA confined space rescue operations level. As rescue is a skill-based event this theory course needs to be matched with skill-based follow up training prior to you trying this on your own.
