The NIETC provides a 2-hour Asbestos Awareness class for workers who are on projects where asbestos-containing materials are present and likely to be disturbed by others. This course does not certify students to perform work that will purposely disturb asbestos materials, but to identify those materials and avoid contact. The course follows EPA requirements for workers who may accidentally contact the material in the course of their work, known as Class 4 activities or O & M operations. Students will review the role of a competent person, OSHA permissible exposure limits, regulated areas and personal protective equipment necessary to work in regulated areas. The course does not count for CEU credit.
