This Asbestos Contractor/Supervisor Initial training course is for any individual who performs supervision of persons permitted to enter the restricted and regulated asbestos abatement work area. The supervisor is also responsible for performing the duties of the OSHA competent person for the asbestos project, consistent with current EPA and OSHA regulations.
An Asbestos Contractor/Supervisor must have completed this training, and have a valid certificate with them at all times while working on qualifying projects. This workshop prepares you to immediately apply your knowledge to the field, with extensive hands-on training and real-world examples from experienced instructors. It combines lectures, discussions, and hands-on demonstrations. Safe work practices, liability, and glove bag procedures are examined in detail.
Training for asbestos abatement professionals is required under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA), which is the authority under which EPA issued the EPA Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan. This course has been granted full approval by the EPA and various States to meet AHERA and ASHARA accreditation requirements for asbestos work in K-12 schools, as well as in public and commercial buildings.

Please Note: Your state has detailed education, experience and application processing requirements to qualify for licensing in the Asbestos field. Most states administer their own asbestos programs, and each state's Department of Environmental Protection/Health is generally the best place to start with questions about requirements and training. Students are responsible to verify these requirements prior to registering for a course.

|Company Application Requirements||Registration with Cal/OSHA is required for contractors and employers that remove asbestos having an asbestos fiber content of more than 0.1% and 100 square feet or more of surface area of asbestos-containing material. Contractors should contact the Cal/OSHA Asbestos Unit at: ACRU@dir.ca.gov and request an application package. This will provide the applicant with the most specific and complete information needed to complete the application process. The applicant will also have to contact the Contractor's State License Board (CSLB) to apply for the appropriate license or certification. Contractors that are seeking a DOSH registration for roofing only can obtain an asbestos certification or ASB. Contractors that are seeking an unrestricted DOSH registration must have a C-22 license from CSLB. The C-22 can only be obtained when the contractor is concurrently in the process of receiving their DOSH registration. Public and private employers performing work on their own property do not need a CSLB license, but do need Cal/OSHA registration.|
|Refresher Training||Applicants must successfully complete a refresher course in the same discipline as their initial course. Refresher training is annual. Refresher is a 1 day, 8 hour course. Registrants must reapply each year to renew their registration and obtain a new certificate. During the renewal their Cal/OSHA compliance history over the past year and other information bearing on their ability to provide a safe and healthful workplace will be reviewed.|

Hazard Management Services, Inc. (HMS) has helped construction managers, building owners, facilities managers, architects, contractors and consultants handle hazardous materials safely AND legally (two different issues) since 1984. Our training division employs instructors from several different firms, most with more than 25 years of hazardous materials experience. All instructors are active consultants, contractors, or EH&S personnel. Many were actively involved in developing the original curriculum for UC Berkeley’s highly respected asbestos and lead training program in the late 1980s, and in revising and generating local, state, and federal environmental regulations during the past four decades. Our classes use interactive teaching techniques and emphasize applying up-to-date knowledge and research (about health effects, regulatory and legal trends, and best industrial practices) to actual situations our students face. In every class, genuine case studies and discussion of participants’ on-the-job experiences help you develop practical responses to real-world problems and avoid costly mistakes. In addition to open enrollment courses for Asbestos, Lead, and RRP certification, HMS, Inc. offers in-house contract training for many specific types of work involving exposure to asbestos, lead, PCBs, silica, mold, mercury, or other hazardous materials. We welcome requests for in-house training tailored to your needs.
