Category A - Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos Awareness is purely an informative course, which significantly improve your knowledge on asbestos. You will learn about where asbestos comes from, what it has been used for, where you may find asbestos as well as learning about the key laws relating to asbestos. The course typically takes 4 hours to complete.

These are some of the many people who would benefit from Asbestos Awareness training:

Plumbers

Painters

Gas Engineers

Electricians

Decorators

Caretakers

Commercial Cleaners

It is important to note that Asbestos Awareness training only improves your knowledge on asbestos. It DOES NOT train or qualify you to remove or work with asbestos in any capacity. If you would like training to work with asbestos please see category B and C training.

Contact us about Category A Asbestos Training

Category B - Non-Licenced Asbestos Removal

Non-Licenced asbestos removal training includes the content from the asbestos awareness in the course. The key difference between the courses is that you are also trained on how to safety remove white (non-licenced) asbestos products. Common products which contain white asbestos are corrugated asbestos roof sheets, asbestos cement floor tiles and textured coating. The course typically takes 6 hours to complete.

People who would benefit from CAT-B Non-Licenced asbestos training are:

Demolition Workers

Roofers

Decorators

Builders

Plumbers

Tile and Carpet Installers

Category C - Licenced Asbestos Removal

Category C, licenced asbestos removal, includes everything from CAT A and B training, but also trains you how to remove all types of asbestos including blue and brown asbestos. Common licenced asbestos products are asbestos insulation board and sprayed coating. Legally licenced asbestos training requires a minimum of 3 days training. At Demcom we spend 5 days training people for licenced asbestos removal, because we want to ensure that the people we train, are trained properly and fully understand how to keep themselves and others safe around licenced asbestos.

The only people who require fully licenced asbestos training are licenced asbestos operatives.

We can provide asbestos training to ensure you have the knowledge and expertise to safely deal and manage asbestos in your place of work.
