Working Safely with Asbestos Containing Materials

CIT is the exclusive training provider in the ACT offering this course. Developed through an industry consultation process, this course aims to bridge the gap between asbestos awareness and asbestos removal, supervision and assessment. This training is ideal for tradespeople such as electricians, plumbers, gas fitters, carpenters and refrigeration mechanics who need to interact, penetrate or drill safely with asbestos containing materials. Develop competency in job risk assessment, hazard controls, safe use of tools, fit and use of PPE and decontamination and disposal procedures. Whilst not compulsory training at present, this course is expected to become so in the near future.
