Courses for The Competent Person, Entry Supervisors, Entrants, & Attendants
The Online OSHA Confined Spaces in Construction Courses offered on our website are the training courses you need if you work in or around permit-required confined spaces on construction sites. The various courses we offer covers training needed for entrants, entry supervisors, attendants, and even rescue personnel. Our courses are recommended for representatives of controlling contractors, host employers, and all competent persons at construction sites having confined spaces, as they too have specific duties under the OSHA confined spaces in construction standard.
These are not short, cheap “awareness-level” confined space training courses like those offered on those other websites. We offer the most comprehensive confined space entry training courses available on the web for construction personnel, each created by a Certified Safety Professional with an advanced degree in occupational safety and health.
NOTE: The three courses we offer are all-inclusive, so there is no need to take all three; just register for the one you need. For example, if you simply want to know if there any permit-required confined spaces at your job site, take the “How to Identify Permit Required Confined Spaces at Construction Sites” course. Entrants and attendants for confined spaces at construction sites would only need to take the “Entrants and Attendants” course needed for entering a confined space or serving as the attendant during entry operation. And entry supervisors and the Competent Person for the construction site would only need to take the more comprehensive “Entry Supervisor and the Competent Person” course, which covers everything in the other courses plus more, thereby qualifying you to act as a confined space entrant or attendant in addition to being an entry supervisor or competent person.
Each online confined spaces in construction training course comes with a notes packet and other
Confined Space Entry for Construction - Training for Entry Supervisors & The Competent Person

Who Should Take these Online Confined Spaces in Construction Training Courses?
The OSHA Confined Spaces in Construction standards found at 29 CFR Subpart AA (1926.1200 – 1213) of the OSHA 1926 construction standards requires workers (entrants and attendants) and entry supervisors involved with all phases of entry into permit-required confined spaces on construction sites (including major renovations and demolition projects) receive training. Workers must also receive additional training or instruction from their employer, where needed, to cover their site-specific policies and procedures as well as any training / instruction that may be needed on the company’s tools and equipment used during confined space entry work conducted at their construction sites.
These confined space entry training courses for entrants, attendants, entry supervisors, and the Competent Person at constructions are also recommended for representatives of controlling contractors, host employers and safety managers at construction sites having confined spaces, as they too have specific duties to be performed under the OSHA 1926 confined spaces in construction standard.
How the Online Confined Spaces in Construction Training Courses Works
Courses are designed to be taken by one trainee. Companies and organizations wishing to have multiple people take our online courses may click the link to register as a Learner Manager and purchase multiple courses to assign to their group of students (group discount rates are automatically applied if you purchase five + courses). Trainees will be able to begin training within a matter of seconds after they are registered for their online confined spaces in construction training courses. To make sure the trainee is at the computer throughout the course, the student is prompted to click an arrow to advance through the course each time a module section is completed. The course is narrated, so the trainee must use a computer equipped with speakers, or they must plug in headphones or ear-buds so they can hear the narration.
One of the major benefits of taking our online confined space training courses is the trainee may log out of their online training course at any time during their training session, and can log back in later to resume training where they left off, even from a different computer or tablet. Students are allotted up to six months to complete their course, but they can certainly complete it much quicker (even in a single sitting) since their confined spaces in construction courses are available for them to log in 24/7/365.
