This training course has two elements: a theory session and a practical session. Both sessions comprise one course, and both sessions must be attended by participants to validate their training.
For the practical sessions, the participants will be organised into groups of 8 by the trainer on the day. Each group will undergo practical training for 1 hour. The first practical session starts around 10.00am and the last practical session will end at 5.00pm.

Participants are asked to bring along, where possible, any other PPE (gloves, protective eyewear) that they may be currently using to handle compressed gases.
All participants will be expected to fully participate in all the practical exercises posted by the trainer.
