NOTICE: Seagull Environmental is in the process of moving - until our new training facility is complete in Spring of 2021, students are asked to meet at 8:30am at USA GROCERS at 2349 NW 9th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311. At this location, after secure parking, a transport vehicle will transport you to Seagull's temporary training location where parking is unavailable, only three blocks away. In return for the inconvenience, Seagull will buy your lunch from a selection of four local restaurants. In addition, for those that choose, COVID-19 testing will be available for free while at class, everyday except Thursdays.
The transport vehicle is equipped with dual air sanitizing devices with HEPA, charcoal and electrostatic filters. Masks and hand sanitizers are required and provided. The original vehicle sat 18, but has been reduced to 4 for social distancing. The vehicle is sprayed with sanitizer after each use.
The temporary training location has all the amenities needed to provide you with quality training, plus unlimited coffee, soda, and snacks.
This Asbestos Worker/Handler Initial course is designed for anyone who, within a work area, removes, encapsulates or disturbs friable asbestos, or who handles asbestos material in any manner which may result in the release of asbestos fiber on an asbestos abatement project. Asbestos Workers must be supervised by a certified Asbestos Supervisor.
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 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.
An Asbestos Worker/Handler must have a valid asbestos certificate at all times while working on a project, and must work under the supervision of a certified Asbestos Supervisor. 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:
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.
