Confined Space Awareness and H2S Awareness Training

Contractors may request that you have a valid Confined Space Awareness and/or H2S Awareness certification(s) on specific job sites.  Both these courses are computer-based and are offered at the Apprenticeship and Mechanical Training Centre Monday to Friday at 8:30 AM and 1:00 PM.

H2S and Confined Space tickets must have an expiry date on the ticket

Many companies provide these courses; however, it is strongly advised that you have a Confined Space Aware ticket and H2S Aware ticket issued by Boilermakers Local 146.  If your tickets are issued through another company they may not be accepted on the job site.  All safety tickets need to be issued in Alberta and they must show an expiry date of three years from date of issue on the ticket.
