This Asbestos Building Inspector Initial training course accredits individuals to assess the condition of asbestos material and report the results. Any person who performs the tasks involved in the asbestos survey, identification and assessment of the condition of asbestos and asbestos material, or who is involved in the collection of bulk samples of asbestos material for laboratory analysis, needs this training.

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.

OSHA requires that all surfacing material - (i.e. sprayed-on or trowled-on materials) and all thermal systems insulation must be presumed to be asbestos containing materials (PACM) in buildings constructed before 1981. OSHA also requires that in these same buildings, all vinyl, resilient, and asphaltic flooring, and the associated mastics and backings must be assumed to be asbestos containing. Only laboratory analysis of samples obtained by a trained and certified asbestos building inspector can rebut OSHAs position on PACM or flooring in buildings constructed before 1981. Building owners, and those involved with construction activities, must identify all asbestos containing materials in the areas of construction via due diligence.

An Asbestos Inspector must possess a valid Inspector certificate and have a copy of their certificate with them at all times while working on the project. 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.

 

Topics To Be Covered Include:

  • Types and Uses of Asbestos
  • Potential Health Effects of Asbestos Exposure
  • Federal and State Regulatory Framework
  • Function, Qualifications, and Role of Inspectors
  • Building Systems
  • Public/Employee/Building Occupant Relations
  • Pre-Inspection Planning
  • Physical Assessment of Friable and Non-Friable ACM
  • Respiratory Protection and Personal Protective Equipment
  • Legal Liabilities
  • Bulk Sampling Documentation and Recordkeeping
  • Field Experiences and Hands-On Skill Sets

 

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.

It is wrote on our arrival instructions to arrive 10 minutes early but when the door is locked and no one that works there shows up to unlock the doors until after 8:30 is an issue. Breaks were very sporadic and often not given until 30 minutes before lunch and also right before the class ended for the day. Class materials are very out dated and I am sure that some regulations have been updated since 1990's and the discussions pertaining to these materials is choppy and one topic is not completed before another completely different subject is started then you go back to the previous topic, which causes confusion in the class. It would also be nice to physically learn how to take the bulk samples rather than only having an hour long discussion on this topic.

The course made the process easy and about as entertaining as it could be. Instructors were knowledgeable and bent over backwards to explain/ find out answers to very specific scope of work questions. The videos were old but still had relevant/ required information. Sometimes the information seemed to dive deep into the weeds for a inspector class but it is explained that this is required info so even people starting their own inspection company can be covered. Learned a lot and after going through the class I wouldn't interact with any jobs that even had the potential of asbestos involvement without someone certified on staff.

The instructor of Seagull Environmental Training, Mr. Stump, is a person who has extensive knowledge in the field and is a highly trained professional. The AHERA BUILDING INSPECTOR course, taught by Dr. Stump, is a course that has extensive contents of interest that are explicitly developed and allow a broad understanding of the subject due to its thematic concatenation and the theoretical and practical development of the course. Which is why I recommend it faithfully and widely.

I found the class to be greatly improved from my first experience with Seagull in the mid 90s, in Tennessee. Back then it was a 'no-frills' operation that only served coffee for refreshments. As back then, in this iteration, the chairs were not comfortable to sit upon so I had to bring extra padding. However, what made this experience more valuable to me was the direct interaction with Mr. James Stump. His perspective on the industry as a whole; clear knowledge of the regulations; and intent of the regulations were informative and refreshing. Coming form an industrial hygiene background, I found greater value in Jim's daily virtual-driven lectures than I ever did from William Spain's or Eva Ewing's lectures back at Georgia Tech - both of whom I highly respect.
