Who are IATP?

The Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) approve our courses. IATP are a trade association who exist to set standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards; they liaise closely with the HSE to promote good practice and maintain these standards. Before selecting a suitable asbestos training provider, there are a number of things that must first be considered. The Health & Safety Executive states that:

‘Training should be delivered in accordance with the Approved Code of Practice L143, ‘Work with asbestos containing materials’ and, for licensed work, Chapter 4 of HSG 247, ‘Asbestos: the licensed contractors’ guide’. Asbestos training providers should also be able to demonstrate compliance with relevant standards.’

Requirements for asbestos training providers delivering any type of asbestos training

All asbestos training delivered by asbestos training providers must comply with the ACOP L143. Regulation 10 of L143 (Information, instruction and training), includes the following:

Competence of those providing training….

AACC are a registered asbestos training provider with IATP and we have signed a statement declaring that every relevant trainer within their organisation meets the requirements stated in regulation 10 of L143. Having your asbestos awareness and any other asbestos training delivered by AACC gives you the re-assurance that a quality service is delivered and an asbestos training course which meets all of the HSE criteria to keep you and us legal!

By choosing a training course provider who is a member of a trade association you can be assured that the quality of training is of the highest standards.
