Currently six candidates are undertaking the RSPH Level 4 Certificate in Asbestos Laboratory and Project Management qualification with ATaC.
This RSPH qualification is Ofqual regulated and accepted by UKAS as meeting ‘competent person status’ as defined in LAB 30. The qualification is made up of three parts – there are two units; ‘asbestos laboratory management’ and ‘project management for asbestos removal work’, which begin with an ATaC induction day and are assessed by assignments; and following successful completion of both units there is a final professional interview.
ATaC has one candidate who has completed both units and assignments, as well as a professional interview, so is awaiting final verification before being awarded a certificate. All other candidates are in the process of completing unit 1, ‘asbestos laboratory management’.
Information on this RSPH Level 4 qualification can be found here.
