Over the last two decades and due to high profile individual cases and media coverage, there is a heightened awareness of the health impact of asbestos exposure. Such exposure can cause a range of debilitating medical conditions, some of which are life threatening or associated with a marked reduction in life expectancy. Persons carrying out asbestos removal work are expected to have knowledge of how to perform asbestos removal safely on a range of sites and knowledge of relevant legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
Site location for work may be either domestic or commercial, and may be a demolition site, a new work site or an existing structure being renovated, extended, restored or maintained. Apart from construction sites, sites may also include ships, farms and mines (soils) and fences.
You will need to provide evidence that you have satisfactorily completed CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry or CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry.
Participants must be able to converse in and comprehend basic English. You will be required to complete a language, literacy and numeracy assessment on course commencement to assess your capacity to meet language and numeracy requirements of the course.

All courses are facilitated by a member of our highly experienced training team in Melbourne, and include trainer presentations and practical activities – so your participation will be required!

Further details of assessment will be provided on course commencement.
