Asbestos awareness training in full accordance with UKATA (United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association) and HSE (Health & Safety Executive) legislative requirements, from as little as £75 per candidate.
We offer the most comprehensive and cost effective asbestos awareness training in the industry. We have trained hundreds of candidates including Ministry of Defence, NHS, Property Consultants, Builders, Plumbers, County and Borough Councils and can provide references on request.
What do UKATA do?
UKATA sets standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards.
It is legal requirement that all who may come across asbestos in their day to day work have been provided with asbestos awareness training. If they will intentionally work on asbestos they must have had appropriate training specific to the tasks they will undertake. Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos awareness training. UKATA provides a quality standard for that training.
When asbestos is to be worked upon deliberately, using a UKATA member to provide that training ensures that the training provider has the facilities, knowledge and experience to properly undertake that training.
Why is UKATA important to Oracle Solutions?
Sub standard training has been a problem within the asbestos industry for many years. Many clients find asbestos compliance complicated and sometimes a confusing subject. Oracle Solutions understand that education is the key element to achieving, but it has to be high-quality education / training. The standards set by UKATA have aided Oracle Solutions in achieving high-quality asbestos training. It is important Oracle Solutions deliver the best and most up to date training in line with the current standards and that we help set those standards within the asbestos industry. As such we are Members of the UKATA Executive Committee and hold the position of Chairman of the Marketing Committee.
What our clients are saying:
“We were somewhat sceptical when we saw how low the cost of training was going to be. However it is easy to see why Oracle are UKATA registered. The training course was expertly delivered, interesting and in a different class to asbestos awareness training we have received in the past, we would recommend this training to anyone who is serious about being asbestos aware”
