About this course

Asbestos Awareness Training


Our Asbestos Awareness course provides students with the knowledge to identify asbestos, where it may be found and an understanding of the steps involved to work safety with ACM (asbestos containing materials).

Asbestos awareness training is essential for any worker in construction or related industries where asbestos containing materials may be present. 

If you need to work in environments where asbestos may be present, attending this course will assist you to identify materials likely to contain asbestos, and teach you the safety requirements for working with asbestos.

This is a non-accredited training course. Students who complete this course will receive a Certificate of Completion. This certificate is issued by WorkSafe Connect (RTO 31385). 

For workers in the Australian Capital Territory, WorkSafe ACT mandates that you must complete a specific awareness course called “10675NAT Course in Asbestos Awareness”. This is not that course.
