Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 2

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.1.

Rectified pre-requisite unit.

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCDE3014A Remove non-friable asbestos. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to remove non-friable asbestos containing material (ACM).

It includes preparing, containing and removing non-friable ACM, and knowledge of decontamination and disposal requirements.

Site location can be a real workplace or simulated environment that may include domestic or commercial premises, a demolition site, a new worksite or an existing structure being renovated, extended, restored or maintained.

Project sites for removal of non-friable asbestos include construction sites, ships and soils.

The model work health and safety (WHS) regulationsand theCode of Practice: How to safely remove asbestos (2018) requires workers to hold certification for the class of licensed asbestos removal work they will be undertaking. Completion of this unit of competency is certification to undertake non-friable (Class B) removal work.

Occupational licenses are required nationally. This unit is required for all ACM removal workers engaged in the removal of more than ten square metres of non-friable ACM.

Candidates are advised to consult with the relevant state and territory regulatory authorities to confirm specific jurisdictional licensing requirements to remove non-friable ACM.
