Independent Asbestos Training Providers & United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association
Shield have successfully upgraded our UKATA membership to allow us to undertake fully licensed asbestos training (Previous known as Category C.). We have also upgraded our IATP membership to match. This means that our training division are now able to offer Asbestos training at all levels both in house and externally to our clients, ranging from basic Asbestos Awareness, Non-Licensed/NNLW, Licensed Operatives, Supervisors and Contracts Managers and more!
We will also be offering several new courses including an “Air Management Workshop”, an “Upskilling Course on Compliance Air Monitoring” and an “Asbestos Removals Industry Administrators’ 360° Overview”. In total we will be offering 30+ training courses!
If that wasn’t good news enough, we now also undertake Operative level 2 NVQ and Supervisor level 3 NVQ Assessments and offer an IQA Service. We also have a short ¼ – ½ day course to coach Contracts Managers on the RSPH Level 4 Diploma examinations.
