City & Guilds, develop programmes of learning, learning technology, certification, and assessment, to support colleges, training providers and governments. City & Guilds qualifications, support services and flexible learning options enable people to unlock their potential and progress in their careers.

As of the first of January 2022,


The 6150 qualifications have been replaced by 6160 Confined Spaces. The updated qualification content is based on the National Occupational Standards developed by Energy & Utility Skills for the industry

These qualifications are for those who must enter, supervise, or manage confined spaces. They are short course single unit qualifications and are supported by the Health and Safety Executive.

All except the management qualification are available in water and non-water versions and are normally a pre-requisite for entering any confined space. The Management qualification meets the need of Water and Non-Water. It is normal practice for these to be re-taken on a 3-year cycle.

They are available to suit various levels of risk and role in confined space entry including managing confined spaces.

Level 2 & 3 qualifications are for anyone entering a confined space. This could be to carry out work, as a top man supporting entry or conducting emergency rescue and recovery. There is also a level 5 qualification for those who manage confined space entry.

Trade Safety is an approved centre. Training is very stringently monitored by City & Guilds to ensure the very best quality is delivered. All records of training are kept on file so to adhere to these demanding standards along with being able to re-issue certificates should they become lost. 

The training that Trade Safety offers in correspondence with City and Guilds is Confined Space medium risk which allows 2 days per person and Confined Space high risk which allows 3 days per person.
