*Note: The course duration for this training has changed due to the implementation of the UKATA Category B Syllabus, implemented 1st September 2014. Originally this course duration was one day, which included the asbestos awareness element. It has been identified that the training requires more emphasis on practical and thus more time to cover the training thoroughly. UKATA have set down two duration timescales for this course, as below:

B1) Initial training with NO previous asbestos awareness training undertaken; Course Duration 1 ½ days - Contact us

B2) Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training (within 6 months); Course Duration 1 day (evidence will be required prior to attending this one day course)


If you have not attended a UKATA Asbestos Awareness course in the past six months, please contact us for more information on how to obtain this. We can offer this face to face at our approved training centre (duration ½ day) or alternatively online via our approved online asbestos awareness training course.
