Asbestos Air Monitoring and Clearance Procedures – Remote Training & Exam Day

Candidates for the RSPH Level 3 Award in Air Monitoring and Clearance Procedures can now undertake remote training with ATaC.

This RSPH asbestos air monitoring and clearance procedures qualification is 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.

ATaC covers all decontamination procedures and always has an actual DCU available so candidates can familiarise themselves with the unit. All candidates undertake FULL DECONTAMINATION, including showering.

It has been developed around HSG248 Asbestos: The Analysts Guide (Edition 2) 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 Testing and Consultancy Association venue across the country and throughout the year.

Candidates will be able to take one day of remote training a week over four consecutive weeks. This gives candidates time to read further and gain practical experience in the workplace, before undertaking another remote training day.

Following this there will be an exam day held at an ATaC Centre, which will be arranged for approximately 10 working days after the last remote training day.

Please note that photographic identification is required from all candidates - read more
