Specialist Upskilling Programme


The Specialist Upskilling Programme and On Site Assessment and Training are for operatives with more than one years’ experience of licensed Asbestos, those returning to our sector after a break or those who have benefited from a previous construction apprenticeship.

The critical step is the assessment of a candidate’s current competence by a trained ACAD Assessor. This highlights gaps in an individual’s competence including any training requirements across Asbestos and supportive disciplines.

If the training requirement is a minimum of 5 days, a bespoke SUP is created. 4 days or less leads down the OSAT route.

The programme culminates in the achievement of the Competence Qualification Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Removal of Hazardous Waste (Construction) – Licensed Asbestos competence qualification. This is assessed by our experienced, technical assessors UK wide at your sites meaing no lost days.

CITB grant support
