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.
We run two courses for friable asbestos:
Students with Minimal or No Experienced (Beginner): We require students to hold a white card (or equivalent).
Students with Relevant Industry Experience (Experienced): We require students to hold a white card (or equivalent) and have a minimum of 3 months experience in one or more of the civil construction, telecommunication, firefighting, electrical, building maintenance and plumbing industries; and in confined spaces.
Participants will also need to pass a language, literacy and numeracy assessment to assess their capacity to meet unit requirements.
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! Assessment activities for each course include a knowledge test and satisfactory completion of practical skills in a simulated environment. Further details of assessment will be provided on course commencement.
