About Us

Asbestos Aware was created by current New Zealand asbestos industry professionals with over 40 years of extensive laboratory, consulting and occupational hygiene experience.

The aim of our courses is to provide candidates with an overview of asbestos, the locations it can be found, some of the main products it can be found in, the health consequences and a general increased understanding of asbestos. Some basic information around the requirements of asbestos surveys, testing facilities and clearances (following removal) is also provided.

Armed with this basic information, our hope is that it will be enough for workers to stop and question materials before they disturb them, this will help to keep both themselves and those around them safer. We wish to raise the general national awareness towards asbestos and therefore reduce asbestos related disease in New Zealand.

Our convenient online training option can be commenced immediately after enrollment with the user will be able to download their asbestos awareness certificate upon successful completion of the final quiz.

If online learning is not for you, we have a brand new classroom training facility now available in central Auckland.
