UKATA Non Licensed Asbestos Removal Training (Category B)
Although the dangers of asbestos are now well known and the material is no longer used, it can still be present in older properties. UKATA asbestos awareness training is sufficient for those who could potentially come into contact with asbestos but those who undertake short duration work with non-friable materials (friability being the likelihood of an asbestos containing material releasing asbestos fibres when disturbed) must complete non-licensed asbestos training.
Who should attend non-licensed asbestos removal training?
Anyone who undertakes work on non-friable asbestos containing materials should attend non-licensed asbestos training. This includes drilling into textured coatings, removing insulating board and lifting floor tiles. For more information on non-licensed asbestos work click here. Please note that you MUST have completed an asbestos awareness training course in the last six months.
- Initial training with no previous asbestos awareness training, the course duration is 1.5 days (or 9 hours)
- Initial training with previous asbestos awareness training within the last 6 months, course duration is 1 day (we will need to see evidence of awareness certification prior to the course)
