Asbestos Training

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

This year, iSi is partnering with Mayhew Environmental Training Associates (META) to provide instructors for the state-recognized training courses.  We will be only offering initial training courses for Asbestos Operations and Maintenance workers.  Please check out the META site for all other initial training courses, or request an onsite training proposal.

Certificates for Inspector, Contractor/Supervisor, Management Planner, and Project Designer will be issued and certified per EPA regulations. This will allow you to work in states that only require federal regulations training. Thus, certificates would be good for Kansas, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico and any other EPA only state. With this certificate, if you find a later in the year you need to work in a different state who requires state-specific material in addition to the federal information, for many states you would have already had the federal part covered and just need to take the shorter state training.

We can provide additional state-specific training as part of our class if we know about it well in advance. If you need certificates for additional states, those will be available for an additional fee. Our partnership with META would be able to offer additional state-recognized training certificates for: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Some states require additional testing, so there may be additional testing fees as well. Each state has its own requirements for notification that a class will be conducted, and these can be 2 to 4 weeks prior to the class.  Depending on when you register, some states may or may not be available.  Please contact us with your needs and we can provide information on availability and pricing for additional certificates and testing.

Cancellation Policy Note: For all scheduled asbestos classes, cancellations received less than 7 calendar days (1 week)
prior to the class,
including no-shows, will be charged at the full rate for the class and registrations will not be extended to the next available class. However, substitutions/replacement student registrations are welcome and accepted for no additional charge.  iSi reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment. If this occurs, you may choose to transfer registration to the next available class or request a refund.

Asbestos Worker Training

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


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.
