Our Non Licensable Work with Asbestos including NNLW Refresher is ideal for a wide range of tradespeople who need to meet the regulatory requirement for adequate information, instruction and training for employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos.
Who is the course for?
Any persons carrying out non-licensed works with asbestos containing materials, as laid down in Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012, Regulation 3(2). This includes, but is not limited to: trade operatives such as demolition workers; construction workers; general maintenance staff; electricians; plumbers; gas fitters; painters and decorators; joiners; shop fitters; plasterers; roofers; heating and ventilation engineers; telecommunication engineers; computer installers; fire and burglar alarm installers; architects; building surveyors; and other such professionals or any other persons likely to disturb and carry out work on asbestos containing materials as defined in CAR 2012.
It is a regulatory requirement (CAR 2012, Regulation 10) for every employer to ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to their employees who are, or who are liable to be, exposed to asbestos, or who supervise such employees.
CAR 2012, Regulation 10, Paragraph 128 – 131 specifies the training that is required for those working with non-licensed asbestos containing materials as defined by CAR 2012 Reg 3(2). This is also further stated in the Health and Safety Guidance Document HSG 210 – Essentials Task Manual, Fourth Edition.
How long does the course take?
The duration of the training can be divided into three categories. The chosen category will be determined by undertaking a TASC training needs analysis (TNA) on individual delegates attending open courses or discussions with the client at the time of booking to establish the correct course and duration for the training.
B1: Initial training with no previous asbestos awareness training undertaken
The expected duration for this training will be 1 ½ days or a minimum of 9 learning hours. This training includes the asbestos awareness element as laid down in UKATA document MS001.
B2: Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training within 6 months of the start date
Verification of the previous asbestos awareness training will be undertaken by TASC and must be no more than six months from the date of the asbestos awareness training, should the asbestos awareness training fall outside of this then B1 training will be required. The expected duration for this training will be 1 day or a minimum of 6 learning hours.
B3: Refresher training having undergone B1, B2 or B3 above within the last 12 months
Previous training certification will be verified to ensure that this was undertaken within the last 12 months and provided by a UKATA Training Provider, failure to demonstrate this will require B1 training as above. The expected duration for the refresher training will be determined by the training provider carrying out a training needs analysis (TNA) and should be no less than 3 learning hours.
NB: Once a full UKATA course has been successfully completed, thereafter the UKATA refresher course is based on a TNA.
If the TNA proves that the delegate has retained sufficient knowledge from the initial full UKATA course, then they are able to undertake the appropriate UKATA refresher year on year.
An effective TNA is the key to delivering the appropriate training and is a UKATA Training Provider’s proof that a refresher course is sufficient.
TASC carry out the TNA utilising our unique computer testing facility which holds a bank of UKATA questions.
Where does the course take place?
The course is delivered at our training centre in Chorley where we hold all of the necessary training materials and equipment.
