The aim and objectives of the AGT Level 1 training programme is to ensure that personnel preparing for a gas tester role are equipped with the knowledge to conduct gas tests for oxygen levels, flammable and toxic gases safely. Their gas testing skills must be assessed either in the workplace or at an approved training centre against the competence units specified in Section E of this standard.
This training programme also equips the delegate with knowledge to conduct gas testing within confined spaces and awareness of associated confined space hazards. Delegates will also learn about relevant legislative requirements, gas measuring and monitoring equipment and documenting gas test results.
This programme is designed for personnel preparing to work as Authorised Gas Testers Level 1 and is required for those involved with performing a test for oxygen, flammable and toxic gases up to and including working in confined spaces.
