RSPH asbestos surveying & analysis qualifications gain Regulatory approval

Qualifications delivered & assessed by ATaC now Ofqual regulated

ATaC, the UK’s leading association for asbestos management services, is pleased to announce that it has received approval from RSPH (Royal Society for Public Health), the regulated awarding organisation, to continue to deliver four asbestos qualifications which were recently approved for Ofqual registration.

Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) is the regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessment in England, so responsible for making sure that:
• regulated qualifications reliably indicate the knowledge, skills and understanding students have demonstrated
• assessments and exams show what a student has achieved
• people have confidence in the qualifications that Ofqual regulate
• students and teachers have information on the full range of qualifications that Ofqual regulate

The RSPH qualifications to gain this recognition are the Level 3 Awards in: asbestos surveying, asbestos air monitoring and clearance procedures, asbestos bulk analysis and asbestos management for duty holders.

Gaining Ofqual accreditation means that these RSPH qualifications have met the required standards of the industry and are assessed at the appropriate level. So for candidates this means these qualifications have received the stamp of approval from the regulator and there is assurance of high standards in all elements of the qualification.

“We are delighted that these asbestos qualifications, which are unique to RSPH, have been added to the Register of Regulated Qualifications” stated Richard Burton, Head of Qualifications at RSPH. “This means candidates have access to nationally recognised qualifications. Also, as the awarding body we will continue to ensure that these qualifications meet the needs of the industry.”

“Ofqual approval for these qualifications is excellent news,” commented Steve Platkiw, the ATaC Manager. “For candidates this gives assurance and comparability with other Ofqual recognised qualifications. Also, in the future this Ofqual status will benefit government funded apprenticeships for our industry.”

As an RSPH approved centre for delivering these qualifications, ATaC undertook a thorough audit which covered a range of aspects such as, professional and consistent delivery and assessment, as well as, accessibility to qualifications and the welfare of candidates at ATaC’s facilities.

Information on these qualifications can be found on the ATaC web site
