CABWI Level 2 Award in Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces (Top Person)


The CABWI Level 2 Award in Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces (Top Person) (Non-Entrant) allows learners to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required by those who need to work at medium risk confined spaces as part of their job role, but who are not required, or are unable, to enter and work in the confined space. Their role will involve acting as a top person on site for those entering the confined space.

The content, structure and assessment requirements of the qualification were developed by CABWI Awarding Body, in consultation with representatives of the water and utilities industries and their training and assessment providers.

This award sits in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is regulated by Ofqual.

If the assessment team identifies any queries or issues with the content of the qualification units or the structure, the centre should contact its external quality assurer or the CABWI office in the first instance. The awarding body can then provide advice on the most suitable course of action and consult further with qualification users, employers and/or training providers as necessary.
