New Suite of City & Guilds Confined Space Qualifications (6160)

To meet with changes made in 2020 to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Confined Spaces, developed in conjunction with EU Skills, City & Guilds have reviewed their Confined Space qualifications and earlier this year announced a new suite of Confined Space qualifications (6160).

The new qualifications are now in effect, alongside the existing qualifications (6150) which will be in place until 31st December 2021 allowing time for a period of smooth transition.

For those working in the water industry, the current 6150 qualifications have been amalgamated with other industry sectors, creating a common set of qualifications. City & Guilds have also created new qualifications which will now cover the job roles within the NOS.

Alpha Training is now offering the following new qualifications:

6160-02 Level 2 City & Guilds Award in Working in Medium Risk Confined Space

6160-03 Level 2 City & Guilds Award in Working in High Risk Confined Space

6160-04 Level 3 City & Guilds Award in Control Entry and Arrangements for Confined Spaces

6160-05 Level 3 City & Guilds Award in Supervising Teams Undertaking Work in Confined Spaces

6160-07 Level 3 City & Guilds Award in Direct Rescue and Recovery in Confined Spaces

6160-08 Level 3 City & Guilds Award in Working as a Member of a Rescue and Recovery Team in Confined Spaces


Alpha Training are excited to be offering all of our customers, the new suite of confined space qualifications.
