Those who successfully complete this course are qualified only to address certain types of non-friable asbestos-containing materials (ACM), such as floor tile and roofing. They would not be able to address any friable ACM, such as asbestos-containing insulation, pipe materials, drywall compound, etc.. This course was developed by OHSA in response to a lawsuit from the flooring manufacturers. This certification allows flooring and roofing contractors to avoid having to become a full asbestos contractor but requires them to follow very specific removal techniques and document the applicability of the standard. The course topics include background information on asbestos, health effects, material-specific asbestos removal methods, cleaning up after asbestos projects, personal protective equipment, waste disposal, documentation for OSHA, etc... The course is eight (8) hours for workers performing labor with a twelve (12) hour supervisor overseeing the project and completing all the required documentation. Please note that while this class will show the contractor to remove one specific material without being licensed, they must still follow applicable asbestos removal techniques or face potential regulatory citations.
Thanks a lot for yesterday’s training. You were clear and to the point. The subject material makes sense and it was presented well. Your practical approach is refreshing and you see through the bs that is tossed around by the EPA, DOE, etc. And here is one for you, I don’t think that you charge enough for this service. I got a bargain at $200.00. I’m just sayin’.

Thanks for the class this morning. It was great being able to have just our small group in training this morning. Made it a lot easier and enjoyable to absorb everything that we had to put into our brains (which isn’t an easy task to do with our group!). The time just flew by and I appreciated your teaching style. If I ever decide to get more training into the lead business, I’ll definitely be looking you up. Thanks again!

Wow, I learned alot and was vary happy with the whole class. Ed was the most knowledgable trainer and the best class I have been in. He made it easy to understand and gave hand-on advice to make the job easier. Hey - also thanks for the tip on the rrp wipes/floor wipes/hand washing station (you should patent it).

I would like to thank you for an exceptional lead abatement class. Your work experiences and industry knowledge
not only was informative but constructive. I would highly recommend this class to others in need of EPA certification.
