Friable Asbestos Removal training - Course Dates
Friable Asbestos Removal training
All workers involved in asbestos removal are required to complete this course to qualify them to remove FRIABLE asbestos. When working in NSW your employer must have a WorkCover Class A Asbestos Removal Licence. If you do not get accredited by a SafeWork accredited Asbestos training RTO, your accreditation will not be accepted by SafeWork NSW. To see who is approved, click here.
You will be provided with:
- Removal of Friable Asbestos Notes
- Set of disposable coveralls, P2 mask, glasses & gloves at no extra charge
- You will also be shown other equipment relevant to this type of work
- Tea, coffee and biscuits at our training site
- Please bring shorts and T shirt for practical training
Please print the code of practice for pre reading safely-remove-asbestos-code-of-practice-8286
The national unit of competency issued through this training is:
CPCCDE3015A – Remove friable asbestos
The “Statement of Attainment” is issued by RTO Safety Training RTO# 40992.
Pre-requisite Units of Competency
- CPCCDE3014A – Remove non-friable asbestos”. This training can be conducted the day prior to your Remove Friable Course.
- All attendees must also hold and present on the day of training a Statement of Attainment showing either “CPCCOHS1001A- Work safely in the construction industry” OR “CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry”. Either of these units of competency are also a prerequisite for asbestos training. If you completed a WHITE CARD formal training AFTER September 2009 you will have this unit of competency, but not if you DID THE TRAINING before that date. THIS IS NOT A SAFEWORK PREREQUISITE, BUT A NATIONAL TRAINING AUTHORITY REQUIREMENT THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED.
- If you do not present a Statement of Attainment for either of these units on the day of training, you can complete the training, but we cannot issue accreditation until you present a CURRENT Statement of Attainment with one of those units on it. This is NOT NEGOTIABLE, as it is a training authority pre-requisite.
- You will need to provide the trainer with 100 points of ID prior to commencement of the training. MUST BE ORIGINALS – NO COPIES WILL BE ACCEPTED – Some documents you can use to provide this can include:
- Your passport, either Australian or International
- Australian birth certificate
- Australian drivers licence
- Medicare card
- ATM card
- utilities bill
- Failure to produce 100 points of identification with original documents will result in you being asked to leave immediately – you must have them prior to course commencement
