CPCCPD3036 Work safely to encapsulate non-friable asbestos in the painting industry

Asbestos Encapsulation Course

Become a Certified Asbestos Encapsulation Contractor.

Asbestos is found widely on many buildings built prior to 2004. Asbestos is found in fences, eaves, roofs and interior wall sheeting. Understanding how to identify it, prepare it, stabilise it, and encapsulate it is vital for all professional painting contractors who conduct building maintenance.

Many painting contractors have been fined and prosecuted for failing to follow the correct procedures for preparing and painting asbestos containing materials (ACM), and because they risked the health and property of their clients. Additionally, many painters have been taken to court because their coating application did not meet the minimum specifications required.

The nationally recognised qualification for asbestos encapsulation is CPCCPD3036 Work safely to encapsulate non-friable asbestos in the painting industry, and it includes:

  • How to identify asbestos containing materials
  • How to choose appropriate materials and calculate quantities
  • How to prepare asbestos sheeting safely and correctly
  • How to apply stabilising coatings and encapsulation coatings to specifications and standards

This new course will provide a certification pathway for any painting contractor that uses asbestos encapsulation products, and has been created in consultation with the Australian Paint Approval Scheme (APAS), Worksafe Queensland and SafeWork NSW.
