UKATA: Non Licensable Work with Asbestos including NNLW
Since April 2012 it is possible to carry out certain asbestos works without a licence. Between non-licenced and licenced asbestos work lies notifiable non licenced work (NNLW) which comes with additional requirements attached.
Non-Licenced Works training is intended for students who may need to carry out non-licenced and notifiable non-licenced asbestos removal. The training delivers the knowledge needed for removing asbestos safely, providing the knowhow to implement the necessary controls required to complete the work.
All students wishing to complete this course must hold a valid UKATA Asbestos Awareness Certificate. This certificate must be issued within 6 months of commencing your non-licensed works training.
If you do not hold a valid UKATA Asbestos Awareness Certificate or it will be older than 6 months at the time in which you are able to attend a UKATA Non-Licensed course we can help....
You can complete the qualification online in advance, or attend a half day course at one of Alpha's training centres.
- Introduction to Asbestos

Whether you are a general maintenance worker, plumber, electrician, carpenter, painter, shop fitter or general construction operative; wherever asbestos may be disturbed asbestos awareness training is an absolute requirement.
The course addresses this excellently before moving on to the more technical requirements of asbestos removal.
Anybody who already carries out non-licenced work can also use this course as an annual refresher.
Multiple Choice Exam
Due to the high risk nature of dealing with asbestos, refresher training is required annually, or more often if:
- Work methods change;
- The type of equipment used changes; or
- The type of work frequently changes.
