Asbestos Training Courses


 

Asbestos Awareness Course (2 hours):
$300.00/base session (includes 10 people, $20.00 per additional attendee)

The Asbestos Awareness Course is a two-hour introductory training that explains the basic safety and regulatory information regarding asbestos, and satisfies employer requirements for OSHA, EPA, and AHERA compliance.  The purpose of the course is to provide sufficient information to identify those building materials that may potentially cause exposures in their work areas to workers who work around- but who will not disturb- installed asbestos materials. The course also provides information on required safety measures and controls that must be provided by employers on all job sites. The course topics include: historic uses of asbestos, health effects, building materials that may contain asbestos, what to do when encountering potential asbestos materials, and how to clean up a minor asbestos disturbance. All asbestos certifications must be renewed annually.

AHERA Asbestos Operations & Maintenance (O&M)/OSHA Class III Certification Course (16 Hours):
$300.00/person

This course is designed to allow in-house workers (employed directly by the building owner for custodial or maintenance work) to perform minor asbestos removal operations as part of a required maintenance operation.  The course is similar to the asbestos worker course but focuses on glove bag removal of small amounts of material (> 3 linear feet) for operational needs only.  The course topics include: historic uses of asbestos, health effects, asbestos glove bag removal, cleaning up after asbestos projects, personnel protective equipment, emergency response procedures, and waste disposal.  Includes course certification exam; all asbestos certifications must be renewed annually.

Please Note: As per Michigan Public Act 135, outside contractors may not take this course for the purpose of removing asbestos in buildings where they work, or to avoid becoming a licensed asbestos supervisor or contractor.

OSHA Material Specific Non-Friable Removal Course (8 Hours):
$1,000.00/base session (up to 10 people, $80.00 per additional attendee)

Those who successfully complete this course are qualified to remove certain types of non-friable asbestos-containing materials (ACM), such as floor tile, roofing, or siding in an intact state.  This certification satisfies the OSHA Asbestos in Construction Standard for specific types of Class II removal, while allowing flooring and roofing contractors to legally avoid requirements to become full asbestos abatement contractors; however, the training requires adherence to very specific removal techniques, cleaning methods, and documentation practices. The course topics include: historical uses of asbestos, health effects, material-specific asbestos removal methods, cleaning up after asbestos projects, personnel protective equipment & respirator use, waste disposal, and job documentation for OSHA compliance.

The course is eight (8) hours for workers performing labor, with an additional OSHA requirement for a licensed asbestos abatement supervisor present onsite to oversee and document the project. All asbestos certifications must be renewed annually.

Please Note: This one-day certification does not qualify an individual or company to remove any friable ACM, such as asbestos-containing insulation, pipe materials, drywall compound, or popcorn ceilings, or to remove any ACM using methods that will render the material non-intact (sanding, grinding, scarifying). While this class will allow employees to remove one specific non-friable material without being licensed, they must still follow applicable asbestos removal and disposal techniques to remain in proper compliance with OSHA standards.
