The standards identified in Qualifications for Working in Confined Spaces: Water (6150) City & Guilds do not relate to a training course. However it is unlikely that without the appropriate training the relevant assessment would be achieved in this case 6150-05 applies. This course provides the required learning and assessment standards to allow those that require the qualification to be assessed when used in conjunction with successful completion of 6150-03.
