Computer Based Training
The computer-based training (CBT) module follows the same syllabus but allows greater flexibility for employees to undertake the Asbestos Awareness course.
Candidates can login whenever they have time, and the course can be finished over several sittings making the CBT more flexible than traditional classroom training.
Bespoke Asbestos Awareness Training
If you are organisation with several staff who all undertake the same role or have very specific requirements a bespoke asbestos awareness course may be beneficial to you. The syllabus can be tuned to individual roles (e.g Electrical worker or civils workers) and individual project (e.g largescale construction project) or it can be tuned to your organisations procedures or policies also. Proving staff with bespoke training shows those staff members that your organisation is doing more than ticking a compliance box and really cares about the training and health outcomes of its staff.
