Asbestos Removal Training Operatives Refresher

Asbestos Removal Operative – Refresher Training

This IATP certified Licensed asbestos removal training course is designed as a refresher for licensed asbestos removal operatives already working in the industry.

As Asbestos Trainers, we are independently audited and accredited by IATP, meaning we have proved competence and compliance with asbestos legislation.

In order to do this refresher course, you must have previously completed the Licensed asbestos removal training for new operatives within the last 12 months, or already have completed a refresher course within the same timescale.

If it’s more than 12 months since you completed your asbestos removal training for new operatives, then unfortunately, you won’t be able to do the refresher course because of regulations and will need to complete the asbestos removal training for new operatives again.

So please make sure that you complete your refresher training before your certificate expires (which has a duration of 12 months).

Do I need refresher training for asbestos removal?

It’s essential as a licensed asbestos removal operative that you are fully aware of any changes that may occur within the UK regulations.

You must also ensure that you adhere to best practices and new techniques that are being used in the industry.

Keeping your knowledge up to date and making sure you and your co-workers stay safe whilst working on-site is a must when working with asbestos because of the health risks involved.

Therefore, by completing a refresher training course every 12 months for licensed asbestos removal, you will be ensuring that as well as adhering to the current health & safety asbestos regulations, you’ll also have the information required to protect yourself and others.

What can I expect from the refresher training?

The licensed asbestos removal training refresher lasts for one full day from 8.30am-4.30pm and is held at our training centre in Bury, Greater Manchester.

Cost per delegate is £135 plus VAT.

We can accommodate for up to 12 trainees and lunch is provided.

These asbestos removal refresher training courses for licensed operatives are held according to demand, so there are no set dates in place, meaning we are completely flexible and can fit in with your training requirements.

The content of the refresher course comes from information gained from a variety of industry sources, including the HSE, meaning the content always remains fresh and in line with current legislation.

As part of the course, attendees are given a multiple choice test along with practical tests throughout (80% pass mark for both).

Upon successful completion of the course, candidates will receive a certificate which will be valid for 12 months from the date of the course.

After completion of the refresher training, as a licensed operative, you will have further enhanced your working knowledge of asbestos, meaning you can continue to work safely and effectively in line with HSE regulations.
