This nationally recognised Remove non-friable asbestos removal course has been developed for workers and businesses who are required to remove or manage non friable asbestos in workplaces. Our asbestos training is thorough, enjoyable and relevant to industry.
Our trainers come from a background in removing and managing asbestos containing material, and we believe our training quality exceeds our competitors. To get an idea of what our training is like please watch our short video.
We tailor our training towards the asbestos removal industry and ensure all students take away information and an experience relevant to their workplace, in an enjoyable and comfortable setting.
With asbestos being manufactured into thousands of products and being widely used in Australia prior to its ban, there are still countless workplaces and homes containing the deadly mineral. Non-friable asbestos products still common in workplaces include roofing, asbestos sheeting, eaves, pipes, fencing, backing boards, pits and many others.
The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 and How to Safely Remove Asbestos Code of Practice states that only appropriately trained workers are permitted to manage or remove asbestos. Workers that are to remove or manage more than 10 square metres of non friable asbestos must have completed this course.
Please note that all previously issued QLD class B licenses expired on 31 December 2014, regardless of the expiry date shown on the card, therefore it is critical to undertake this course to maintain industry currency. It is a legal requirement for all workers removing over 10 square metres of non friable asbestos to have completed this one day course.
This course covers both theoretical and practical components of non-friable asbestos removal.
Theoretical components include licensing, asbestos registers, safe work method statements (SWMS), asbestos removal control plans (ARCPs), clearance certificates and air monitoring requirements. Not only do we cover this critical documentation but we also give you sample documentation to help you meet your legislative requirements.
Practical components involve you completing a risk assessment, learning how to set up an asbestos removal work area, completing an asbestos removal job, decontaminating your tools, equipment, PPE and yourself and then returning the work area to an operational condition.
Once you have completed our asbestos removal training you will have greater knowledge and skill to keep yourself safe.
How to get an asbestos removal license?
If you are a worker, you do not need an asbestos removal license however if you are removing over 10 square metres of non friable asbestos, you need to be working under an asbestos removal license holder and hold the relevant asbestos removal training.
