Licensed Asbestos training (often known as Cat C) is aimed at those persons who work with asbestos, and that work requires an HSE License as defined within the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 and supporting Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) L143: Managing and Working with Asbestos. These include Licensed Asbestos Removal Companies (LARC's), Licensed Scaffolding companies and Licensed Maintenance companies.
All require entry level training, and the ACoP L143 is clear in stating that refresher training is required every year or more frequently when identified gaps in competency are identified, the type of control measure equipment used is changed, whenever the work methods change or at least annually.
For Asbestos removal companies, there are three distinct levels of training: Operative, Supervisor, Manager. All have different requirements, so AT&C Ltd works closely with the company to determine the appropriate training needs by reviewing past and present operational performance and future needs. This is known as a training needs analysis (TNA) and benefits all by not wasting time and efforts on delivering repeats of basic core skills and knowledge, but focusing on those elements that will aid to develop both the individual, the company and ultimately the sector.
AT&C Ltd can help companies undertake a TNA and so design, engineer and deliver a bespoke training programme for their staff on an 'in-house' basis. We also offer 'open' courses for those where 'in-house' training is not an option.
We work closely with WeFitRPE who are Fit-2-Fit accredited. We can arrange for face fitting around the course delivery, saving you time and effort.
