As part of the Work Health and Safety Act of 2011 all individuals who could come into contact asbestos must complete asbestos awareness training. In order to meet these requirements, plumbers, carpenters, cablers, and other professionals in the ACT were required to take the 11084NAT Asbestos Awareness Training (previously 10675NAT).

Although it is not mandatory to complete the course outside of the ACT, companies and governments are increasingly adopting the course as the gold-standard in asbestos awareness training. Ask AlertForce to contextualise the course for your workplace.

The asbestos awareness course approved by ACT is 11084NAT. Previous course was numbered 10314NAT.

How is training delivered?

While online training is not currently available, it is acceptable to receive asbestos awareness training via a live webcast.

The course is designed to be completed in a minimum of four hours. Although the exact duration can vary depending on who offers the course, and how many students are enrolled, the minimum time frame must be followed.

AlertForce is approved by ASQA for this course to be delivered across the country. Only a few RTOs are permitted to deliver this course nationally.

 

Why should you complete an asbestos awareness training course?

Asbestos Awareness 11084NAT is the course that is required in ACT and Canberra.

If you have completed asbestos training before January 2008, it will not be accepted. The course must be provided by a registered accredited organisation between January 8, 2008 and June 30, 2014. The course should be CPCCDE3014, Removing Non-friable Asbestos. This is a higher level course than the awareness course.

The course is designed to reduce health risks associated with asbestos. A list of occupations where workers are exposed to asbestos is provided by the Minister’s Declaration of Occupations. Training is required for all workers whose occupations are listed in the declaration of occupations. Other asbestos-related occupations, such as architects, AC mechanics, and civil engineers, also require training.

 

What’s the cost of the Asbestos Awareness Training course 11084NAT?

The price of the Asbestos Awareness Training course 11084NAT (previously 10675NAT) can vary depending on where you live and who provides the course. In Brisbane the price ranges from $220 to $250. Outside of Canberra the course is less popular because it’s not mandatory. Many workers from outside Canberra need the training in order to work on construction projects in Canberra.

These prices are standard. Most companies offer discounts for group training. If you have 10 or more workers that need the Asbestos Awareness Training course (previously called 10675NAT), you may be eligible for the discount.

What can you expect to learn after completing the Asbestos Awareness course 11084NAT?

The 11084NAT Asbestos Awareness course (previously referred to as 10675NAT) is designed to teach workers to identify asbestos. This course DOES NOT deal with asbestos removal or its encapsulation.

By the end of the course, participants should be able identify the health risks and hazards associated with asbestos. Asbestos is a significant risk factor for lung disease. Asbestosis is another name for this condition. Asbestos can cause cancer in humans and increases the risk of lung diseases.

Asbestos was not banned in Australia until December 2003. It is still found in older homes and buildings in the form or insulation, tiles, and wallboards.

Asbestos is also found in brake shoes, elevator equipment, ductwork and electrical panel partitions.

The course explains how asbestos is dealt with once it has been discovered. Most asbestos cases must be reported to and dealt with by a qualified asbestos removal company or encapsulation company.

PCBUs can provide asbestos awareness training to ensure the safety of all individuals on the construction site, including workers, contractors and visitors.

 

What Accreditation will I receive?

After you complete 11084NAT (previously 10675NAT), you will be given a final assessment to determine if you have understood all the information presented during the course. You will receive a Nationally Accredited Statement of Attainment if you pass.

Before entering a construction site, asbestos awareness training in the ACT is mandatory. As an employer, you must ensure your employees receive this training. ACT has approved the 11084NAT course in Asbestos Aware. This course is only available via live webinars or face-to-face and is only offered by qualified training organisations.
