General knowledge of the types, the uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant.
Here you will outline the types of asbestos, explain where it can be found and explain the main reasons asbestos was used.
Avoiding the risks from asbestos.
Describe the risks of various asbestos fibres, how you would find information about asbestos before starting work and the emergency arrangements when asbestos is disturbed.
Understand in simple terms where asbestos legislation fits the wider context of health and safety legislation. The legislation governing asbestos and work with asbestos, particularly regulations 5 and 6 of CAR. The basic framework (Regulation 4) for managing ACMs.

How long is a UKATA Asbestos Awareness eLearning course?
Similarly to the classroom course, the training will take between 3-4 hours of learning. You can complete eLearning courses in your own time; if you wish to break up the training to fit your schedule. Alternatively, if you’d like to complete the training quickly, the course will not take up too much of your time and cuts out an extra time spent travelling to the classroom.
Why should I take this course?
The course is mandatory for those who work in a trade or occupation involving building maintenance. The construction industry requires workers on a refurbishment or construction project to have some form of asbestos training.
Not only is the course a requirement for working, but you will also gain further knowledge of asbestos and its dangers and how it affects the construction industry. Asbestos exposure is a key contributor to respiratory deaths in the construction industry and allied sectors. By understanding it, you will be able to protect yourself and others.
The eLearning format is also much more cost-effective compared to attending the course in the classroom. Not only is the course fee a fraction of the classroom price, but the extra expense is also spared from travel and any potential accommodation you may need for the training.
