Great training course, highly recommended. We thought it was great that we could do it on the go from our phones and tablets instead of being in the office and really liked the fact it remembers where you left off so you can take a break whenever.

We hadn't done asbestos training in quite a few years so had forgotten a lot of the knowledge but this course outlined all the important information we needed to keep ourselves and the general public safe.

Management System

If you are purchasing courses for an organisation, our online learning management system has been built to solve the problem of maintaining central records and ensuring that everyone’s training is current and up to date. If an inspecting body wants to check your records, simply use our website to display a full record of staff training certificates.

You can also set up automatic reminder emails to ask your users to take or retake training. You can tailor these emails and the timings for sending and you can even specify that the email appears to come from yourself. Once enabled, the training system will manage all of the chasing for you.


If you work in a job where you are frequently drilling or installing equipment such as CCTV, gas pipes or computer networks and you are likely to encounter asbestos then it is a legal requirement that you be trained to the correct level.

Asbestos Awareness A is the most common training and is really about saving lives and reducing the potential for contamination. In most installation jobs you will be required to drill, cut, or otherwise disturb possible Asbestos Containing Materials at some point. In essence, if you need to drill, you need asbestos awareness. This also extends to people who estimate and assess where a system of cables should go as they will need to access potentially contaminated areas.

Yes. Once you have successfully met the pass requirements and completed the course, you can download your personalised certificate. If unsuccessful, you can re-take the course as often as you like.

While there is no set legal requirement to re-take your training and refresh your knowledge, the Health and Safety Executive suggest that you do so regularly. It is best to re-take your training every 1-2 years.

“Great course! It opened my mind up to a lot of interesting facts.  I now feel more confident in dealings with potential asbestos hazards.”

Asbestos Awareness 'A' Certificate

Course Content

This module will introduce you to the content of the course and online training. You will then learn about who should be aware of asbestos and why it is so important. At the end of the module you will be given an example of the kind of test you will take during your training.

This module is designed to give you a brief background on asbestos and why it was used so much in the building and other industries. The module is important to you because it introduces the different kinds of asbestos and starts to explain how and when they were used.

The purpose of this module is to really drive home the importance of asbestos safety. The bottom line is that asbestos kills thousands of people a year, and the more you understand about how asbestos works and the danger it presents, the better you will be able to avoid exposure. The module also looks at who is at risk and why it is so easy to miss if you have been exposed.

Unfortunately, asbestos was used for many years in almost all kinds of buildings, from homes to hospitals, schools to warehouses. This module looks at where asbestos may be in a building and the sort of building materials and fixtures that contained it. We will also look at the things that can cause asbestos to be released and the importance of knowing what materials you are dealing with and how likely they are to crumble and release deadly fibres.

Should the worst happen, and you find yourself needing to deal with asbestos, you will need to be able to manage the situation properly for the safety of yourself and others. This module looks at how to assess the risk of asbestos being released and how to understand the risk assessments that may already be in place. It will also guide you through a step-by-step process of dealing with contamination.

When it comes to asbestos, the law is very clear and the penalties for making mistakes can be costly and may even result in imprisonment in some cases. This module looks at the parts of the law you need to know and how it relates to you and others. As many installers are self-employed contractors it is vital you understand where you stand and the relationship between you and the law.

The final assessment is where we test your Asbestos Awareness knowledge. All the answers are contained within the course.

Once you have passed your assessment, you will be able to download your certificate. The pass rate is 70% but don't worry if you do not pass the first time, as you can re-take the test as many times as you need to.
