Course Overview

Individuals who have previously completed MSMWHS217 Gas Test Atmospheres and hold a Statement of Attainment may be required to complete refresher training to maintain currency. Industry standards recommend that individuals should undertake refresher training every two years. This is due to changes in Australian and industry standards, as well as updates in WHS legislation, regulations, and codes of practice, that can impact the knowledge and skills required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or workspace. Refreshed knowledge and skills can help improve workplace safety and minimise the risk of injury or harm to yourself and others. 


Our online refresher course offers the convenience of studying at your own pace, from anywhere and at any time.
