Competency is vital for individuals working in the licensed asbestos removal industry, therefore, ARCA offers qualifications for operatives, supervisors and managers to assist in the continual pursuit of excellent standards.
For operatives, supervisors and contract managers qualificiations verify their knowledge and competence in their particular role, and support applications for a CSCS card, which is a requirement for working on many construction sites.
Also, for new and aspiring managers within the asbestos removal industry we offer an ILM qualification.
The qualifications we offer are through three national awarding bodies, the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and the ILM.
All qualifications are described below.
There are a number of options to gain an NVQ depending on how much experience an asbestos removal operative has on-site and whether the employer pays the CITB Levy or not.
