Asbestos Awareness Course

Although the UK government banned the use, supply and import of asbestos in 1999, it can still be found in many buildings today. We now know that asbestos causes disease, including cancer, and therefore represents a major health and safety hazard that must be handled with due diligence.

While this course does not qualify you to work with asbestos in a professional capacity, it will provide you with a comprehensive overview of asbestos, its legacy and how you can play your role in protecting yourself and others from its harmful effects.

You Will Learn

  • What asbestos is, its history, what it is used for and why its presence is a major health and safety concern.
  • The legislation that governs the safe management and handling of asbestos.
  • Where you can expect to find asbestos in buildings constructed before 2000 and why some asbestos-containing materials are more dangerous than others.
  • The health hazards associated with asbestos, including asbestosis and cancer, and the interaction between asbestos exposure and smoking.
  • How employers should prepare for, and respond to, accidents and emergencies involving asbestos.

Benefits of Taking This Course

  • You will have a greater understanding of how asbestos may affect you and your colleagues, which is particularly important if your line of work puts you at special risk.
  • If your position obliges you to manage or oversee asbestos-related work or maintenance, this course will give you the background knowledge required to seek out appropriate guidance or support to ensure that all work is carried out safely.
  • If you are a duty holder, this course will help you meet your obligations under health and safety law.
  • You will learn how to deal with asbestos-related incidents and how to help others in the event of an emergency.
  • This course will provide you with an insight into one of the most significant workplace health problems of the 20th and 21st centuries, so will benefit anyone interested in occupational health.

Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 5 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 5 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 5 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 2 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

Very easy to follow modules with brilliant work sheets to check what you have just learnt. Highly recommended.

Harriet Chandler

Helpful tips learned during the course and many fun facts. I will be completing 6 more courses after this one. Such a great learning experience. The knowledge in each package is phenomenal!

Each course is broken down into modules to make it easy to break down the course for short breaks and as soon as you sign back in again it remembers where you left off in your course. How clever!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to brush up their knowledge and skills. Best of luck!

An excellent course with up to date thinking based on good research about canine behaviours. I particularly liked the style of teaching. Suitable for all levels and had just the right touch.

I found it stimulating, encouraging and above all, not patronising. It will be very helpful to me on my road as an animal Reiki therapist working with a wide variety of breeds in a rescue centre. I am now much more aware of calming signals and subtle signals that the dog is ready to accept contact.

I would recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance their understanding and communication with dogs.

Lucy Lofting

Very Informative course, breaks everything down easily into simple steps.Thank you.

Nicola Hovell

I really enjoyed this course. Although I already work in customer services, I found it very informative and I picked up a lot of useful information and tips. What I liked about the course was that it was something you could do at your own pace and it was easy to follow. It made me feel more relaxed about my studying and put me at ease when it came to the final test at the end. The modules were just the right length, with plenty of content to get your teeth into but not too much that it became overwhelming, and that made it better to learn and digest what was being said. I would certainly recommend it!

Stephen Rawlinson

I really enjoyed this course. Was a lot of reading and had to stop and try to take it in.

There were 21 modules, and most of them took 45 minutes to complete, so you need to be in a position, where you actually have the time to do all the tasks that are required. The tasks are mainly to do things by yourself to practise what you have just read, but doing it will help you out so much.

Will be looking for another course, as I enjoyed this so much, definitely worth the price as the certificate is worth more on your cv.
