Construction Safety Passport (CSP) + Class A & B Asbestos Removal Course



$ 1000 + GST per person



2 Days


Unit Standard

NZQA Unit Standard 497, 29766, 29765



This two-day course is for tradespeople and businesses who remove and manage asbestos or asbestos-containing materials (ACM) under Class A and B accompanied by our in-house construction safety passport, which is a unit standard course (US497) required if they do not hold an equivalent pre-requisite.


Tradespeople tasked to remove friable and non-friable asbestos must hold or demonstrate the equivalent knowledge and skills in health and safety in the construction industry of US497 or other similar proprietary health and safety induction certification recognised in New Zealand before sitting Class A and B to undertake work. 


Anyone who undertakes asbestos removal in an area of over 10m2 must have completed a non-friable (Class B) asbestos training course. Class A and B jobs also require the presence of someone licensed to supervise asbestos removal.


The course covers both the theoretical and practical components of this type of asbestos removal: difference between friable and non-friable asbestos containing materials (ACM), all aspects of preparation, site isolation, removal and decontamination, site clean-up, and completing associated regulatory documentation.
