Gas Test Atmospheres Perth · Melbourne · Darwin
Using Gas Testing Equipment in The Workplace
The purpose of ERGT Australia’s Gas Test Atmospheres (GTA) course is to train and assess individuals to operate gas testing equipment to test for hazardous atmospheres.
The gas test atmospheres course is designed for individuals who are required to conduct atmospheric testing of areas within the workplace to determine if it is free of hazards and safe for people to work. These individuals would typically undertake monitoring of potentially hazardous atmospheres in the workplace.
The gas test atmospheres course is hosted in-person at our training facilities in Perth, WA, Melbourne, VIC and Darwin, NT. Please enquire for more information.
The expected learning outcomes for the nationally recognised Training unit MSMWHS217 Gas test atmospheres are:
- Prepare for gas testing
- Test gas
- Maintain equipment
