Course Overview

It has been recognised for many years that asbestos is a hazardous substance. The people who work with asbestos must be trained in the safe way of handling and transporting the material. There is a duty of care that all removal of asbestos containing materials is carried out in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984, the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 and Part 9 of the Code of Practice for the Safe Removal of Asbestos – 2nd Edition [NOHSC: 2002 (2005)] and the Code of Practice for the Management and Control of Asbestos in the Workplace.

A Restricted Asbestos Licence (RAL) is required by law in Western Australia for the removal of materials that contain non-friable asbestos, also known as Bonded Asbestos or Class B Asbestos. The Restricted Asbestos Licence allows people to remove amounts exceeding 10m2 of bonded (non-friable) asbestos.

Upon completing this course, you are required to submit an application directly to WorkSafe WA to apply for your RAL. This licence is valid for three years. For more information on licence requirements, including demonstrating you have experience in asbestos removal and details of how to apply for a licence, please visit WorkSafe WA. We recommend you visit the WorkSafe WA site and research the licence requirements prior to completing the course.

How Can I Receive a Nationally Recognised Certification?

For just $20 more, our full-day program offers successful participants both the WorkSafe (WA) “WSRAL001” (required for your RAL application) and CPCCDE3014A - Remove non-friable asbestos which is a nationally recognised certification enabling you to operate in states other than Western Australia.

It is also worth noting that the national certification has become a legal requirement for some subcontractors when removing asbestos in Western Australia, especially if you are:

  • working on a site that is owned or controlled by the Federal Government
  • working under a Federal Government awarded contract
  • undertaking works nationally in the Telecommunications Industry (i.e. NBN), or
  • operating in other states of Australia.

If you are interested in obtaining both qualifications please see our full-day program here.

Thanks to your team. Also good to see a real course where you do learn and have to earn the qualification rather than just get approved because you “turned up”. Hopefully this will keep the level of the people in the industry at a high quality and will actually mean the qualifications hold some value in the workplace.
