What this course does and does not do?

  • This training fulfils the basic skills and knowledge requirements in removal of friable asbestos according to the prescribed training course number.
  • This course does not represent a removal licence or permission to remove asbestos containing material without a license and/or government notification. Asbestos Removal Licences are issued by the regulator (e.g. your Safework / Worksafe authority) who require the license holder, in turn, to have suitably trained workers to perform removal work with registered supervisors.
  • This course does not represent on-site verification of competency or site assessment.
