This Authorised Gas Tester Training Level 3 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.
