About The UKATA Asbestos Awareness Online Course
Our new UKATA registered Asbestos Awareness Course offers affordable and relevant training to organisations, sole traders and contractors alike, both in Kent and across the UK.
Our new video-based online Asbestos Awareness training course has been specially developed here at SAMS in conjunction with UKATA, the United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association. The UKATA are an independent body setting standards in asbestos awareness training, so you can rest assured that you’re receiving asbestos training that counts.
Our video-based online asbestos awareness course is aimed at making the candidates aware of the dangers associated with exposure to airborne asbestos fibres, occurring through unknowingly coming into contact with materials containing asbestos. The engaging visual presentation helps learners to identify the substance with greater confidence, and harnesses the skills of our training team.
This video format is an upgrade on our previous audio-based course. It is compatible across a wide range of browsers, but you are advised to take it on a 10-inch screen or larger, with 7 inches being the absolute minimum advised by UKATA. The video training is conducted by our Operations and Training Director, Lee Sadd, and gives you all of the benefits of our brilliant classroom courses.
If you work on buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000, asbestos could be present. You will need awareness training so you know how to avoid the risks. The course will take you approximately two hours, and on successfully completing the course you will be automatically issued a UKATA Asbestos Awareness certificate, which you can download immediately.
The email address on your order is where the log-in instructions will be sent. Please ensure it is correct to prevent any delays.
This course will no longer run on Internet Explorer! Please upgrade your browser to Edge or use Google Chrome, Firefox, or another current browser.

The Benefits of Asbestos Awareness e-Learning
Online learning (often referred to as e–learning) is increasingly used as a method of providing asbestos awareness training. HSE recognises the use of e-learning as a viable delivery method, among others, for asbestos awareness training, provided it satisfies the requirements of Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the supporting Approved Code of Practice L143 ‘Managing and working with asbestos’.
– Health & Safety Executive
e-Learning is the more cost-effective and convenient alternative to classroom training. This video-based online asbestos awareness course is intended to make students aware of the dangers of asbestos arising from unknowingly coming into contact with airborne asbestos fibres.
e-Learning is recognised by HSE as a good learning tool as long as it meets the requirements of Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and Approved Code of Practice L143 ‘Managing and working with asbestos’. Our new UKATA Asbestos Awareness course has been developed to make learning about asbestos an enjoyable and engaging process.
Please note that this online asbestos awareness course does not train students to work with any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs), which can only be trained in a classroom environment. The course is about making the candidates aware of the dangers associated with unknowingly coming into contact with asbestos.
Please be aware that HSE recommend that asbestos training needs to be taken on an annual basis for individuals are most probably going to come into contact with asbestos through their job. This course is fully audited and registered by the United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association, which is the leading organisation of its nature.
How does the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Online Course work?
SAMS have invested in brand-new video training for UKATA Asbestos Awareness, conducted by our Operations & Training Director Lee Sadd. By taking this course, you’ll receive a classroom quality learning experience that goes above and beyond what is offered by most providers.
Monitor Staff Progress
SAMS Ltd has an advantage over other companies with the organisational section of our LMS. Companies can monitor their staff progress and access all certification in this section, as well as being able to see which licenses have been redeemed by their staff, and who still must take the course.
This certificate is valid for a year from the date of issue. You will only need to buy a licence for the candidate who’s taking the course; multiple licences will need to be purchased for a group of candidates.
Unlike the certificates, the licences are valid without end, so can be used at any time. Your certificate is available to print/download once you have completed the course, it is not emailed to you.

Step Two: Click on the link within the email which will take you to a login screen – you will need to REGISTER/SIGN UP here.

You then enter the course management area, where you can add your licence key in the box provided and click add to assign the course to your account.
We recommend that this Asbestos Awareness course is undertaken in a quiet learning environment, free from distraction and interruption.
