Asbestos Abatement Training

Asbestos Abatement Training trains and certifies you to perform removal procedures (Types I, II and III). Depending on the risk level of the asbestos containing materials, the job will be defined as either a Type I low risk abatement, Type II medium (moderate) risk abatement, or a Type III high risk abatement.

Each abatement type has an escalating amount of safety procedures to ensure a safe removal of asbestos from the area. These procedures are in place to protect the workers on the job site and also to ensure a proper removal of asbestos from the area.
