About e-Learning

About ARCA e-Learning.

e-Learning courses are designed for experienced workers with minimal training needs, aiming to refresh their understanding of core principles and expectations. They consist of modules that, when completed, constitute comprehensive asbestos refresher courses.

The courses align with Regulation 10, Information, Instruction, and Training, of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. They follow the core practical competencies outlined in the Asbestos Management Institute’s ‘Competency within the Asbestos Removal Industry’ guidance document. Which has been endorsed by the HSE as a sensible and appropriate approach to training and competency management.

Frequency of Refresher Training for Licensable Asbestos Work.

Refresher training for licensable asbestos work should be conducted annually, as a minimum.

Additionally, refresher training for licensable asbestos work should be provided more frequently when:

  • – Changes occur in work methods.
  • – Different equipment is introduced to control exposure.
  • – Significant changes are made to the type of work performed.
  • – Identified gaps in competency exist.

If more frequent refresher training is required, due to any of the reasons above, then the appropriate training should be arranged to meet training needs.
