Asbestos Project Manager

ASBESTOS PROJECT MANAGER

Introduction

This syllabus sets out the guidance issued by the UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) for the provision of asbestos training for those involved with managing asbestos works on site.

The document provides the syllabus for the training along with guidance on the minimum content of courses. Trainers can offer bespoke or tailored training for the remainder of any training session but the core content MUST be adhered to.

Occupational Relevance

Suitable for persons who are responsible for delivering and overseeing asbestos removal projects and are required to understand the legislative requirements for asbestos surveying and asbestos removal procedures, including the procurement and the on-site management of Asbestos Contractors (Licensed and Non-Licensed).

Duration

The duration of the 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.

PM1) Initial training with NO previous UKATA asbestos awareness training undertaken;

PM2) Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training (within approximately 6 months);

PM3) Refresher training having undergone PM1 or PM2 above within the last 12 months.

Definition:

PM1) Initial training with no previous UKATA asbestos awareness training undertaken – The expected duration for this training will be 1 ½ days or a minimum of 9 hours tutor/learning time. This training must include the asbestos awareness element as laid down in UKATA document MS001.

PM2) Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training (within 6 months) – Verification of the asbestos awareness training must be undertaken by the training provider and must be no more than six months from the date of the asbestos awareness training. Should the asbestos awareness training fall outside of this, then PM1 training will be required. The expected duration for this training will be 1 day or 6 hours.

PM3) Refresher training having undergone PM1 or PM2 above within the last 12 months – Previous UKATA training certification should be verified to ensure that this was undertaken within the last 12 months and also by a suitably recognised training provider, failure to demonstrate this will require PM1 training as above. The expected duration for the refresher training will be determined by the training provider carrying out a training needs analysis and should be no less than 3 hours of tutor time.
