The Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) are a trade association who set the standards expected in asbestos training. Asbestos is a dangerous substance, due to exposure causing lung cancers such as mesothelioma. They liaise closely with the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) to ensure good practice to maintain their high standards.
It is a legal requirement for all people who expect to work with asbestos or come into contact with it to be provided with asbestos awareness training.
Employers must ensure that all builders or maintenance personnel allowed on site provide evidence of having had asbestos awareness training. IATP training provides an unrivalled standard for asbestos awareness.
Who Needs IATP Asbestos Training?
This online IATP training is for any employees who may be exposed to asbestos in their day-to-day work. This can include, but is not limited to:
- General maintenance workers
- Joiners and Carpenter

Even if you have undertaken an asbestos awareness course previously, it is always useful to take a refresher course.
Once you have completed your IATP course, an asbestos awareness certificate will be available for you to download in PDF format. This can printed off, saved and emailed to you and your employer for verification of completion. There is no expiry date for this certificate.
