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:

  • Background Information on Asbestos
  • Relevant Federal, State and Local Regulatory Requirements, Procedures and Standards
  • Health Effects of Exposure to Asbestos
  • Purposes and Methods of Asbestos Monitoring and Testing
  • Case Studies
  • Personal Protection of the Worker (hands-on required)
  • Preparation of Work Area (hands-on required)
  • Asbestos Abatement Hazard Reduction Methods (hands-on required)
  • Proper Clean-Up and Disposal (hands-on required)
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Decontamination (hands-on required)
  • Additional Safety Hazards


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.
