Should I Take Training for Construction or General Industry?

Generally, if you are doing any kind of construction work, such as building a new structure or reconfiguring a space, then you will more than likely need the Confined Space Entry Training for Construction. On the other hand, if you are refurbishing existing equipment, then you will probably need the Confined Space Entry Training for General Industry.
