What this course does and does not do?

  • This training fulfils the basic knowledge requirements to work within Australia and New Zealand as an Asbestos Assessor. You are required to hold a current national ‘Asbestos Assessors’ certificate and License to be allowed to inspect and issue clearances certificates for Class A Friable asbestos removal in the workplace. For class B removal, as a minimum, you are required to be appropriately trained and experienced in  performing inspection clearances as an Independent Competent Person. A Licensed Asbestos Assessor is regarded as a more experienced and qualified person and can perform clearances on all Class B removal work.
  • This course does not represent an Asbestos Assessor Licence or authority to inspect as an Independent Competent Person. Your Asbestos Assessors License is issued by your State or Territory Regulator based on combined qualifications and experience.
  • This course does not represent on-site verification of competency or site assessment and does not abdicate your responsibilities under WHS regulations.
