482 STUDENTS

Despite being banned from use in the UK construction business for 20 years, Asbestos still presents a life-threatening risk to builders and DIY experts to this day. An awareness of this long-lasting risk is essential to anyone who works in older properties or may encounter materials containing Asbestos. 

This Asbestos Awareness Training course is for everybody who may possibly come into contact with Asbestos; from office workers to builders. Asbestos remains a hazardous material that can cause fatal conditions if the right situation arises. The course will explain the origins behind the use of Asbestos and why it can still be found today. It will also prepare you for identifying the different forms of the material and when to call an emergency or the authorities.

By the end of the course, you’ll have total understanding of the uses of Asbestos and the risks it still maintains. You’ll also learn how to dispose of it, and the laws that are in place to protect you. As the material is still found within properties to this day, it provides essential details for spotting and preventing exposure to it.

    Everyone knows asbestos is dangerous, but there was a lot about the substance and the handling of it that I wasn’t aware of. That’s why, when I wanted to find out more, I decided to take this course. The other reviews were all very positive, the course itself was given the thumbs up by lots of independent professionals and organisations and the content was laid out in such a way that I could easily grasp the points they were making. Within a day or two of passing, I was sent my certificate, a serious qualification that went right into my CV.

    I’ve taken several online courses before, but remain a little wary about them. However, this asbestos course by Training Express was everything I could have asked for. You could tell that a lot of thought and care had gone into designing the course, and thanks to this I never got bored when working my way through the modules. A first time for everything! Passing has given me the confidence I never thought I knew, and I’ve told everyone I know about how superb an experience learning with this provider was.
