Course Overview 

Nationally Recognised Training

Asbestos Assessors are required to visually inspect and provide clearance Certificates for asbestos removal sites.

Additionally, Assessors monitor airborne asbestos fibres as an integral part of identifying hazards, assessing risks/controls; and ensuring that the workplace is free of visible asbestos fibres and air monitoring results are at acceptable levels prior to reoccupation.

The unit includes:

  • the planning of the air monitoring process,
  • the selection and use of processes and air-monitoring equipment,
  • the conduct of the assessment process, and
  • the proper handling and interpretation of results.

Asbestos clearance certification, assessment and air monitoring are required during all friable (Class A) and for non-friable (Class B) asbestos removal, where a risk assessment indicates that airborne asbestos fibres may result from the removal activity.
