Additional Information

The duration of our non-licensed asbestos training can be divided into three categories; the chosen category should be determined by undertaking a training needs analysis on individual delegates attending open courses or discussions with the client at the time of booking to establish the correct course and duration for the training.


Initial training with no previous asbestos awareness training undertaken: The expected duration for this training will be 1 ½ days or a minimum of 9 learning hours, this training must include the asbestos awareness element as laid down in UKATA document MS001.


Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training within 6 months of the start date. The training provider must undertake verification of the asbestos awareness training, and must be only six months from the asbestos awareness training. Should the asbestos awareness training fall outside of this, then B1 training is required. The expected duration of this training will be 1 day or a minimum of 6 learning hours.


Refresher training having undergone B1, B2 or B3 above within the last 12 months. The trainer should verify previous training certification to ensure that this was undertaken within the last 12 months and also by a UKATA Training Provider. Failure to demonstrate this will require B1 training as above. The training provider will determine the expected duration of the refresher training by carrying out a training needs analysis-this should be no less than 3 learning hours.

Not sure which asbestos awareness course you need? Read our guide to asbestos awareness training.

NB: Once a full UKATA course has been successfully completed, thereafter the UKATA refresher course is based on TNA.

If the TNA proves that the delegate has retained sufficient knowledge from the initial full UKATA course, then they are able to undertake the appropriate UKATA refresher year on year.

An effective TNA is the key to delivering the appropriate training and is a UKATA Training Provider’s proof that a refresher course is sufficient.
