See the bellow's testimonials to find out what delegates from Housing Associations in Scotland think of this course.


"The course delivery was very well done, starting with the history and origins of asbestos made it feel as if I knew the material not just a description and photo on a screen or book. showing the people working with asbestos photos and stories from the days when asbestos was so prevalent and letting them know it was, and is people like them effected by asbestos makes taking in the subject matter so much more interesting."

"Learning about the various types of asbestos and how data is collected for surveys."

"I learned a lot of new relevant information about asbestos. The instructor was very engaging and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the subject."
