This is a formal asbestos air monitoring and clearance procedures qualification, approved by the qualifications regulator, Ofqual.
This Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) qualification has been designed to provide the theory and practical knowledge and skills required for use of microscopes and fibre counting to WHO rules, air sampling and 4-stage clearance procedures. It has been developed around HSG248 Asbestos: The Analysts Guide for sampling, analysis and clearance procedures.
UKAS document LAB 30 ‘Application of ISO/IEC 17025 for Asbestos Sampling and Testing’, states that all asbestos analysts carrying out air monitoring and 4 stage clearances must hold formal recognised qualifications (in addition to demonstrable knowledge, experience and in-house training). This qualification is recognised by UKAS for this purpose.
Our tutors have extensive industry knowledge and experience in delivering this qualification. Candidates can take this qualification at an Asbestos Removal Contractors Association venue across the country and throughout the year.
