Asbestos removal is a fast-growing industry that requires specific training around awareness and management. When asbestos containing materials (ACM) are present, or even suspected of being present in the workplace, only qualified personnel are able to safely manage or remove it.
Our remove friable asbestos course is conducted over 16hrs in our state of the art simulator and training rooms. With your Asbestos Removal Training complete, you will be recognised by State regulators as having the necessary training to meet WHS and OHS asbestos licensing and regulations. Strategically designed to provide in-depth knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, our courses equip you with removal knowledge as well as management and compliance requirements under the new WHS regulations.
