Our online Asbestos Awareness training has been approved by RoSPA and has been independently audited by IATP – the auditor commented that the programme was the “best e-learning programme I’ve seen to date.”

This course is only available to those who have completed the full Asbestos Awareness course and would like to refresh their knowledge.

To ensure the integrity of this on-line course, and to help industry identify those who have a bona fide certificate, delegates MUST attend our training centre(s) to undertake the training, this way industry can be confident that the person named on the certificate is the person that has taken this course.
