Successful completion of this annual refresher class is mandatory for those individuals who have completed the Building Inspector Initial course and who are expected to take bulk samples of suspect asbestos containing materials.
The training course is consistent with current regulations:
• EPA 40 CFR 763, Subpart E
• EPA Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP)
• Federal OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1926.1101
The refresher course requires successful completion of the class and a final exam score of 70% or higher based on a 30-question multiple choice exam.
The MAP requires the use of trained and accredited asbestos professionals when conducting asbestos inspections or designing or conducting response actions at schools and public and commercial buildings. There are lessons covering the minimum regulatory requirements for proper sampling and respiratory protection.
