AHERA Contractor/Supervisor Initial

Description

Passing this 40-hour course allows you to supervise the removal of asbestos products in demolition and renovation projects as an AHERA accredited Contractor Supervisor.

The EPA and OSHA require this accreditation if you ever supervise the removal of 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

You are prepared to supervise the work yourself, or to interact successfully with contractors, industrial hygienists, and consultants who plan and perform the work.

This course is one of the Cal-OSHA requirements for Certified Asbestos Consultants and Site Surveillance Technicians.

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.

Note re: Covid 19 scheduling

We are happy to have returned to in-person scheduling for most of our initial certification classes.  There is still a possibility that some classes could be converted to online webinars in response to Covid-19 infection rates or other factors.  Should that happen, this class will be held in a blended learning format with 3.5 days of online webinar instruction and 1.5 days of in-person activities.  All registrants will be notified promptly of any such change in delivery.
