With our practical experience and expertise in asbestos removal, we also train individuals in ‘Asbestos Awareness’ and ‘Non-Licensed Work with Asbestos’.

Shield Services Group offer Asbestos Awareness (up to 15 delegates) and Non-Licensed Asbestos Removal Training (up to 10 delegates). Refresher training is available for both courses.

The training can be held at the client’s premises or where feasible at our Branch depending on numbers. Our courses are informative, engaging and meet our clients’ needs. All attendees receive a certificate on completion of the asbestos training.

Asbestos Awareness – ½ day

We understand that for an organisation to know what the risks of asbestos are, the dangers and the protocol, it is first necessary for them to know that there are risks, dangers and protocols. This starts with an asbestos awareness course to get individuals familiar with the substance and its hazards.

This course is for anyone who could come into contact with Asbestos and covers:

  • The properties of asbestos and its effect on health
  • The type of uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant
  • The general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency
  • How to avoid the risks from asbestos


Non-licensed Asbestos Removal – 1 day

This course is available to and may be applicable for anyone working in demolition, property maintenance, waste disposal, security companies, energy suppliers, providers of facilities, as well as anyone providing plumbing and heating, shop fitting, plastering, flooring, painting and decorating, roofing and general construction work. Past sessions have also been attended by groups from universities and schools, architects and surveyors.

This course is tailored for specific types of non-licensed work required by your company.

The course will cover topics including:

  • Asbestos awareness
  • Asbestos exposure
  • Safe practices and control measures
  • Recording and reporting
  • Maintenance of RPE and PPE
  • Hygiene requirements
