Asbestos Awareness & Management
Supplied in-house to meet specific needs and reflect the particular requirements for the organisation or alternatively why not join a mixed group on our open courses always held on a Wednesday & Thursday at our North West newly refurbished 3* Hotel (Day 1 is UKATA asbestos awareness).
Persons with learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia are welcomed on the course with special arrangements made; please advise us when booking; although we always ask at the start of the course for anyone with learning difficulties to let us know privately at break time.
If you have more than six persons you may prefer to have an in-house course.

“What Our Customers Say
I attended 4 days covering demolition (2 days) and asbestos (2 days) which were excellent and extremely interesting, I would recommend these to others both at Laing O'Rourke, other contractors, clients and friends.Carl S Brierley
