Training

SOCOTEC delivers UKATA approved asbestos awareness courses, as well as bespoke professional training, which can be delivered from your premises.  The courses are designed to provide delegates with the skills and competencies necessary to recognise and manage asbestos requirements.

All of SOCOTEC's trainers are practicing consultants, with a wealth of experience in management of risk. In fact, many of our delegates find that real life examples cited by our trainers help them to associate the theory with application to their own work place.

We can also offer bespoke courses to meet your needs whilst also covering the obligations for compliance. We can deliver bespoke training solutions to a variety of sectors, throughout the UK, and as a nationwide business, you can choose for the training to take place at many of our regional premises or on your own premises.
