Online Asbestos Awareness course

This is a Category A: Asbestos Awareness course, aimed at making the candidates aware of the dangers associated with exposure to airborne asbestos fibres through unknowingly coming into contact with asbestos materials.

If you work on buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000, asbestos could be present. You will need asbestos awareness training so you know how to avoid the risks.

You can take this course online at your own pace. If you wish, you can complete the course in more than one sitting. Once you’ve passed the quiz at the end of the course, you’ll be emailed your UKATA certificate, which is valid for 12 months. The course should take approximately 90 minutes to complete.

About this asbestos awareness training

We believe that training has to be kept interesting. UKATA described our online asbestos awareness course as:

Very thorough course that gives the delegate a great learning experience. Voice over and text on screen allows the user to either listen to the course or through lack of audio equipment the delegate can read the content.

A great array of pictures are used within the presentation and some interactive elements to keep the delegate engaged.

This course is divided into four sections:

  • What is asbestos?
  • Asbestos and its effects on health
  • Asbestos Containing Materials
  • Asbestos bans, laws, surveys and registers

Each section is clearly labelled and easy to navigate. When you’ve finished reading the content on a page, just click the Next button to move to the following page.

We haven’t overloaded pages with details: instead, each page covers a single point or piece of information. The content is supported by a professionally-voiced narration and by images taken from real-life situations.

Each section of the course has a short quiz at the end to help reinforce your learning. At the end of the course, there’s a final quiz after which you’ll receive your UKATA Asbestos Awarness certificate.
