Asbestos Training through ATaC

MapTraining Venues

Only a small number of staff to train?
Your staff can join one of the scheduled public courses we provide for our popular programmes. If we don’t have a scheduled course, we will either link your staff with others to provide a cost effective programme for you, or put your staff onto a short waiting list and advise you of the likely timescale for the next course.

In-house training
If you have a larger number of staff, we can provide standard courses at our one of the six locations or
conveniently at your own venue, providing you have access to the appropriate facilities. In-house training can prove to be more cost effective and minor amendments  can sometimes be incorporated to suit your specific requirements.

Bespoke solutions
We can develop bespoke solutions with you, to define your training objectives and provide an appropriate training programme either to include your own relevant systems and procedures, or to cover organisation specific training requirements. Read more
