Course Overview

Asbestos-related disease has killed thousands of Australians. Australia and the UK have the highest rates of asbestos-related death in the world. Asbestos is highly toxic, causing a range of lung diseases that are slow to develop but in many cases deadly. While its use is now completely prohibited, there is a growing need to safely dispose of asbestos and asbestos containing material (ACM).

When asbestos containing materials (ACM) are present, or even suspected of being present in the workplace, only qualified personnel are permitted to safely manage or remove it. Any worker removing more than 10m² of non-friable (also known as ‘bonded’) asbestos must be appropriately trained, as outlined in the Work Health & Safety Regulation 2011 and the Code of Practice for the Safe Removal of Asbestos. Non-friable asbestos materials include asbestos cement sheeting, often called fibro, used in many buildings before 1990. The sheeting was used for cladding, roofs and fences and can often be found as backing boards in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.

This course is a legal requirement for workers who need to remove more than 10m² of non-friable asbestos.

Please note: Pinnacle Safety and Training will not use any asbestos containing material during this training program.

“How will I know if I am eligible for a licence, and how do I apply for one?”

  • Tradespeople, contractors and other business operators: Commercial operators can remove more than 10m² of non-friable asbestos only under the authority of a Class B (non-friable) or Class A (friable) asbestos removal licence issued by the State Authority. As an employed worker, you need to do this course, but do not need a Class A or B licence yourself if you are working under the authority of a licenced operator (e.g. the company or supervisor).
  • Queensland - Doing this course is required before applying for a Class B licence. For more information and details of how to apply for a licence, please see WorkCover Queensland.
  • Homeowners and owner builders in Queensland: After completing this course, you are certified to remove more than 10m² of non-friable asbestos. You do not need any additional licence.

The Tower Rescue training was great! I enjoyed every minute! Our trainer Gordon was friendly, helpful with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I also liked the simulated rescue scenarios complete with mock blood! These scenes made me, and the other students really think about what an emergency rescue might involve and steps needed to perform an effective and efficient rescue. Thinking of getting into Rope Access! Highly recommended!
