Asbestos Awareness & Management
(UKATA registered)

This 2 day course is prepared and delivered in-house either remotely using ZOOM or TEAMS etc or preferably 'Face to Face'; the benefits of in-house are we can tailor the content to meet specific needs reflecting particular requirements for the organisation. (Day 1 is UKATA asbestos awareness).

Persons with learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia are welcomed on the course with special arrangements made; please advise me in advance, although I always ask at the start of the course for anyone with learning difficulties to let me know privately as I can accomodate 1 to 1 assessments.

To help you decide, call Wayne on 07712 767744 and discuss the relative merits and best options for you.

Having attended the excellent 2 day Asbestos course I found the interaction & engagement we received from the tutor were good techniques and great for learning; I certainly intend booking the Demolition course as we are about to undertake a refurbishment
