This Authorised Gas Tester Training Level 2 course will provide you with the knowledge and understanding to enable you to work safely when performing tests for oxygen, flammable and toxic gases. It includes testing in confined spaces, relevant legislative control, atmosphere measuring and monitoring equipment, gas testing in confined spaces and interpreting and documenting results.

The tasks authorised gas testers are required to undertake may vary depending on the workplace operation at the time. The tasks also vary in complexity and responsibility. Therefore, the AGT role has been split into three levels, they are: AGT Level 1, AGT Level 2 and AGT Level 3. a) AGT Level 1 is required for those involved with performing a test for oxygen, flammable and toxic gases up to and including working in confined spaces. b) AGT Level 2 is required for those involved with testing for flammable gas in preparation for hot work. c) AGT Level 3 is required for those who provide safety watch duties by the ongoing monitoring of a hot work site.

  1. Define hot work
  2. Explain the type of production operation being tested for flammable and toxic gases
  3. Identify the principles of hot work gas testing as applied to the work area
  4. Identify the hazards and properties of flammable and toxic gases including oxygen deficiency and enrichment, nitrogen and specialist materials appropriate to the location
  5. Recall the acceptable levels of flammable and toxic gases and the correct amount of oxygen
  6. Recognise the need to carry out a suitable and sufficient risk assessment before testing activities
  7. Identify how to use a Safe System of Work
  8. Identify the roles and responsibilities of an Observer
  9. Identify the implications of statutory requirements
  10. Interpret operational requirements – to include policies, procedures, instructions, codes of practice and standards
  11. Demonstrate how to select, use and care for PPE for different toxic and flammable gases through risk assessment
  12. Consider the appropriate levels of respiratory protective equipment
  13. Identify the restrictions and reasons for them within the Permit to Work system
  14. Indicate how to access and interpret the relevant operational instructions
  15. Define the operating principles of atmosphere monitoring and measuring equipment and frequently observed failure modes
  16. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of atmospheric flammable and toxic gas detection equipment
  17. Recognise when to select between aspirating and non-aspirating detectors to obtain a representative sample of the atmosphere being tested
  18. Recall the pre-start checks for a gas detector
  19. Identify when to calibrate atmospheric testing instruments
  20. Identify the extent of test boundaries
  21. Identify the different types of detectors used for the flammable product
  22. Explain how to set up the relevant detector for each gas testing application, its potential failure modes and confirming its correct functioning
  23. Identify where to locate sentinel style portable or transportable site monitoring equipment for optimum benefit
  24. Explain how to interpret the results, to include both normal and abnormal
  25. Explain how to document the results and advise relevant personnel
