Asbestos Training

Asbestos training per EPA’s Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA) and OSHA 1910.1001.

iSi’s longtime asbestos instructor, Ron Aunquoe, is back after a year’s hiatus to provide instruction for our classes.  iSi will be issuing certificates as our training is accredited by the State of Missouri (Missouri Training Provider MO#126). Please let us know at registration if you plan to be licensed in Missouri so we can be sure you take the Missouri test. Your certificates will allow you to practice in Missouri (as long as you take the Missouri-specific test) and any other state which just requires training on the EPA regulations such as Kansas, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico and any other EPA only state. Some additional states such as Oklahoma also accepts the Missouri certificate.

Currently we’re only providing the refresher classes of Contractor/Supervisor, Inspector and Operations and Maintenance.  Occasionally we may schedule an initial class out of necessity or demand.  If you would like to be notified of upcoming initial classes, please email us here.  Due to lack of demand, iSi chose to no longer be licensed to provide Management Planner, Worker or Project Designer training, however, we do have persons on our staff who are still licensed and certified in these areas to assist you in any projects needing these disciplines.  


For anyone supervising asbestos abatement activities of friable asbestos-containing building materials in a school or public and commercial building.  This may include persons who provide supervision and direction to workers performing response actions or foremen, working foremen, or leadmen.  Refresher training is required annually.

Operations and Maintenance

For all custodial staff or maintenance workers in any facility or a school who conduct any activities which may result in the disturbance of asbestos-containing building materials within the course of their duties.  This training is required annually and allows workers to do minor incidental cleanups of asbestos-containing materials.


For anyone inspecting for asbestos-containing building materials in schools or public and commercial buildings. Refresher training is required annually.

Project Designer

[Not provided by iSi – for informational purposes]

For anyone designing projects which will disturb friable asbestos-containing materials including response actions or maintenance activities other than a small scale, short duration activity or a major fiber release episode. This course is for designers of asbestos project specifications and asbestos abatement projects and refresher training is required annually.

Management Planner

[Not provided by iSi – for informational purposes]

For anyone preparing asbestos management plans for schools.  Anyone preparing management plans for commercial and public buildings are not required to have accreditation per TSCA Title II, however these persons may find this class helpful in preparing to design or administer a facility’s asbestos operations and maintenance (O&M) plan. Refresher training is required annually to maintain formal certification

Asbestos Worker Training

[Not provided by iSi – for informational purposes]

This asbestos training is for anyone conducting asbestos abatement activities with friable asbestos-containing building materials in a school or public and commercial building. Refresher training is required annually.


What happens if I miss my annual refresher? Will I have to take the full class over again?

You have a 12-month grace period if you miss your refresher. After the 12-month grace period, you would have to take the initial course over again.  However, once you’re past your annual refresher date, you cannot practice that asbestos discipline until you receive your refresher.
