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.
Jenny Wright

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.

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.


Sadly, if the school was built before 2000, then yes. According to some estimates, as many as 86% of schools may contain asbestos of some kind. 

No – this course is about awareness and avoidance of danger. You should not attempt to remove asbestos without expert guidance and you may need a specially licensed operator. Moving asbestos could present a significant risk to your health and that of others.

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.

If you are estates or facilities staff then you should take our Asbestos Awareness for Facilities Staff - Category A course. As other school staff are not required to have the full qualification, this course is appropriate.

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

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. We will then move on to the potential health issues surrounding it and the people who could be at risk.

The purpose of this module is to explore the materials you could encounter which may contain asbestos. The module also looks at the effect of age on these materials and how likely they are to release the deadly fibres. Finally, the module shows you how risk assessments and management are used to manage asbestos if it is found in a school.

This short module gives you an overview of what the process will be should the worst happen and you think you have disturbed or released asbestos fibres.

This module will introduce you to the relevant law and put the danger from asbestos in perspective. Finally it will offer some simple, everyday advice that you can use to help reduce the risk of accidental exposure.

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.
