The Benefits of 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’.

How does the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Course work?
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.
Booking Your Courses
Step One: Select how many courses you would like, and pay for them using the basket function in the top right of your screen. You will then be sent your licence codes via an email – please check your junk mail too!
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. If you have purchased multiple licences each learner must create their own account (and keep hold of those registration details as this will be what you use to log in with to retrieve your certificates). 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 the course is undertaken in a quiet learning environment, free from distraction and interruption.

You can pay for the course using Worldpay, Paypal or any credit or debit card. Payment is secure via Worldpay and Paypal – if you don’t have a Paypal account, you will be given the option to pay with a credit or debit card. There’s no time limit on when you need to complete the course after purchase – and there’s no need to do the course in a single session.
The course saves your progress, so you don’t need to re-do any sections if you prefer to finish the course in more than one go. This is why many people choose to complete their asbestos training through our SAMS Ltd e-learning options.
If you require a VAT receipt in addition to your Paypal or Worldpay receipt, please email email@example.com with the order number and transaction date.
