Operative training.

New entrants into the industry or those who have been away from it for some time will require 'New Operative' training.

This is a minimum 3 day course and in accordance with the Approved Code of Practice (L143) and The Licensed Contractor's Guide (HSG247), it covers the following elements:

  • What is asbestos? How has it been used in premises;
  • The health effects of exposure to asbestos;
  • Legislation;
  • Enclosure construction;
  • Controlled stripping techniques;
  • Respiratory Protective Equipment;
  • Personal Protective Equipment and clothing;
  • Transit procedures and decontamination;
  • Cleaning and clearance air testing;
  • Plant and equipment (demonstration);
  • Waste management and disposal;
  • Emergency procedures;
  • Non-asbestos hazards;
  • Fault finding;
  • Roles and responsibilities;
  • Site inspections and record keeping;
  • Management systems and monitoring;
  • Risk assessments and Plans of Work.


The course is designed to be run with both classroom and practical sessions. AT&C Ltd are proud that the focus is on delivering training in those practical skills needed for an Operative to work on site. There is a heavy emphasis on practical and although written tests are undertaken, it is the application of the knowledge that drives this UKATA approved and registered course. 

A major section of the course centers on decontamination procedures, and all delegates must undertake full decontamination which involves removal of all clothing, and showering in a mobile decontamination unit (DCU).

All successful delegates receive certificates and site cards issued via the UKATA database. The certificate is valid for one year.
