Certified Asbestos Awareness Technician Course (CAAT) 

Course credential: CAAS 

Course Fees: $295.00

Program Overview   

OSHA's asbestos standard for general industry at 29 CFR 1910.1001(j)(7)(iv) requires employers to provide an asbestos awareness training course for employees who perform housekeeping operations in areas where an asbestos-containing material (ACM) or presumed asbestos-containing material (PACM) is present. The elements of the course must include the health effects of asbestos; locations, signs of damage and deterioration of ACM and PACM; the proper response to fiber release episodes; and the standard's requirements related to housekeeping. This training must be held annually and conducted so that all employees understand it.  

Asbestos Awareness training course provides students with the information they will need to identify work areas where asbestos may be present, understand the harmful effects of asbestos, describe methods to avoid asbestos exposure, and become familiar with OSHA and EPA standards designed to protect workers on the job site, among many other important topics.  

Students who should take this course are those who may be exposed to asbestos on the work site. This training is NOT for those workers that perform asbestos abatement activities, and does not provide equipment training for workers required to use personal protective equipment (PPE) on the job site.  

Additional training with site-specific protective equipment must be provided by the employer using the equipment that will be used on site prior to or at the time of initial assignment. 


The required amount of time to complete the course is dependent upon your knowledge of workplace safety, but we find that the average completion time is approximately 8 hours. You have up to six months to complete the course.   

There are over 200 slides in this course. If you would like to take the course please sign in below
