We understand that travelling to training increases costs, so we bring the training to you.
Does your job make you susceptible to disturbing asbestos containing materials (ACM)? Do you employ people who are likely to disturb asbestos whilst carrying out their normal duties? If you answer yes to either of these questions, then you need to book an asbestos awareness course or annual refreshers.
A course that meets the syllabus requirements of UKATA is just what you need and will provide the correct level of information and training. The course will cover:
“Raising awareness about asbestos and its dangers amongst the trades is so important. People need to be aware and protect themselves, their family and customers. Our courses are informative and practical. They can help to protect life.” Dr Tim Hamilton, Asbestos Expert and MD of Scientific Services Ltd.
We provide courses throughout Cornwall and Devon at venues to suit your needs.
Scientific Services’ asbestos awareness course meets the requirements of regulation 10 within the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012.
Our course aims to provide you with an understanding of asbestos, its risks and your legal duties. Following its completion you should be able to avoid work that may disturb asbestos during your normal work activities, and should you discover it, understand what to do next.
Any person in a construction related occupation that is “liable to disturb asbestos during their normal work, or who supervises those employees…” (HSE, 2018).

There are likely to be other occupations that we have not listed here. Please contact us to check the relevancy of the course for you.
Our course is delivered using a PowerPoint presentation. We want you to interact. Throughout the day there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and compare experiences. Towards the end of the course all participants complete a multiple choice test.
The course syllabus covers the following topics:
This course is an awareness only course and does not prepare delegates to work with asbestos. You would need further training for this. If needed, we can provide advice on what course would best suit you.
The asbestos awareness course is a half day course. We can provide both morning and afternoon slots to best suit your needs.
On completion of the course, candidates get a certificate. This certificate is valid for twelve months. After this time there is a legal requirement for delegates to attend an annual refresher course.
The course is £125.00 + VAT per delegate.
Discounts are available for group bookings. Please contact us for a quote if you are looking to book multiple delegates.
We understand that you and your companies are busy. Travelling to courses can make investing in your training costly. We like to bring the training venues to you. We have agreements in place with a range of venues throughout Cornwall and Devon and can book training rooms near to your business.
We also arrange a number of training courses throughout the year. Contact us to check our upcoming course dates.
Many asbestos awareness courses are delivered by generic training companies. In contrast, our training courses are delivered by one of our asbestos consultants. They hold a combination of BOHS P401, P402, P403, P404 and S301 qualifications. They are knowledgeable and have years of experience of working with asbestos.
This in depth knowledge is what sets us apart from our competitors and may be why you chose us. We can bring our practical experience to the course. We are experienced in managing situations where asbestos has been discovered and disturbed. There is no question that we will be unable to answer.
