Pre-requisite Units of Competency

  1.  CPCCDE3014 – Remove non-friable asbestos”. This training can be conducted the day prior to your Remove Friable Course.
  2. 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.
  3. If you do not present a Statement of Attainment for either of these units on the day of training, you cannot complete the training, and will be asked to reschedule.  This is NOT NEGOTIABLE, as it is a training authority pre-requisite.
