USE A SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS
US ID 242852 - NQF Level 4 - Credits 4

Breathing Apparatus Training Course

The breathing apparatus training course will enable the learner to use a
self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) safely and effectively during
normal occupational assignments and emergency operations.  Training in
the correct use of breathing apparatus will give the learner fundamental
knowledge and skills to ensure that respiratory protection is not intention-
ally compromised, and that they retire from hazardous areas before their
air is depleted. This breathing apparatus training course incorporates the
specific outcomes and assessment criteria of the SAQA registered Unit
Standard.

Pre-requisites
The learner will be assumed to be competent in the following:
•  Mathematical Literacy. NQF level 3
•  Communications. NQF level 3
It is recommended that learners should be in a fit medical and physical
condition as per industry standards and norms.

The breathing apparatus training course includes formal instruction on
relevant topics associated with the use of breathing apparatus such as
understanding of respiration, different hazardous atmospheres as well as
practical exercises in donning, operating and maintaining this protective
gear correctly. It will enable the learner to use a self-contained breathing
apparatus safely and effectively during normal occupational assignments
and emergency operations.  This breathing apparatus training course
covers the following: the physiology of respiration; the nature and
characteristics of common hazardous atmospheres; limitations of a self-
contained breathing apparatus; the components of a self-contained
breathing apparatus and their functions; inspecting and maintaining a self-
contained breathing apparatus in a state of readiness; donning and doffing
a self-contained breathing apparatus safely and efficiently; working in an
area of obscured visibility while wearing a self-contained breathing
apparatus.
