AHERA Abatement Worker Initial


Passing this 32-hour course allows you to perform the removal of asbestos products in demolition and renovation projects (Class I and II asbestos work) as an AHERA accredited Asbestos Abatement Worker.

The EPA and OSHA require this accreditation if you are removing asbestos-containing products that fill more than one glovebag or waste container.

You learn how to safely remove asbestos products using the most up-to-date methods and equipment. You strengthen your understanding of safety issues, regulations, protocols, and practices that protect workers’ health.

With the guidance of experienced abatement contractors, you practice:

  • setting up containments
  • taking air samples
  • using HEPA vacuums, glovebags, and other safety equipment

Abatement workers must be Supervised by an AHERA accredited Contractor/Supervisor.  Supervisors should take the 40-hour Contractor/Supervisor certification course instead of this 32-hour course. 

An annual 8-hour refresher course is required to retain your AHERA accreditation and/or California asbestos certification. 

Certificate Fees

Course fee includes Cal-OSHA accredited certificate of completion.
