With the current asbestos legislation placing a legal duty on the employer to provide asbestos training for the employees, it makes good sense to utilise whatever means and resources currently available to have a compliant work force.
At Ferncroft Environmental, we fully understand what is required, having worked with asbestos materials for over 40 years. That’s why as one of the UK’s leading providers of UKATA verified and audited training to the general trades and asbestos removal industry, we decided to make our asbestos awareness training available 24 / 7 via our online internet based portal, as computer based training.
By doing this, our online training not only allows you to meet your legal duties but is done in a way that fits in with you at a pace, location and time to suit you via the internet.
Our online training is divided into 4 easy to understand modules, covering all the requirements outlined under regulation 10, ‘Information, Instruction and Training’ as detailed in the approved code of practice that supports the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
With Professional voice over and interaction, the automated course allows the candidate via a secure log in portal to take the course, sit the exam and even receive their UKATA registered certificate upon completion and all in real time. The candidate upon passing and receiving their certificate of training are automatically entered onto the UKATA certificate database, which ensures traceability.
To take the course online, simply click on the ‘Purchase Course’ button below and you will be directed to our secured payment portal where a variety of payment methods through or payment provider Worldpay is available. Once payment has been made your log in details will be sent to the email address you provide at time of purchase. Simply follow the instruc- tions and away you go.
Because of the way the course is designed, you can log in and out as you wish or as your time permits. Until you have completed the course, our system will remember which slide you are on, and if you have to log out will take you straight back to the next slide when logging back in.
