Overview
This standard covers the theoretical and practical skills to undertake ancillary licensed work (licensed maintenance) as defined in the approved code of practice (ACoP), currently L143 Second Edition, Regulation 10 - Training licensed work. On successful completion of this course, delegates should be able to safely supervise and manage work with ancillary (licensed scaffold) works.

CITB has developed this standard in discussion with industry

Duration

Minimum 1 day of 6 learning hours

Purpose/Scope

To provide delegates with the theoretical and practical skills to undertake ancillary licensed work (licensed maintenance) as defined in the approved code of practice (ACoP), currently L143 Second Edition, Regulation 10 - Training licensed work.

On successful completion of this course, delegates should be able to safely supervise and manage work with ancillary (licensed scaffold) works.

The scope of this standard covers:

  • properties of asbestos
  • effects on health
  • types, uses and occurrences
  • licensed and non-licensed
  • uncontrolled release
  • plans of work
  • preventive controls
  • assessments of the risk
  • air monitoring
  • safe working practices
  • control measures
  • personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • respiratory protective equipment (RPE)
  • recording and reporting
  • correcting defects
  • hygiene requirements
  • medical examination
  • decontamination procedures
  • waste handling procedures
  • emergency procedures
  • notification
  • regulations
  • sampling
  • other hazards

Occupational relevance

Training delivered against this standard would be relevant to the following occupational groups:

  • Supervisor
  • Manager

Candidate pre-requisites

There are no candidate pre-requisites as part of this standard

Instruction/Supervision

As a minimum, course instructors must be able to demonstrate that, in relation to this standard, they have:

  • a train the trainer or instructional techniques course certificate e.g. NVQ Level 3 Learning and Development or higher 
  • successfully completed training to this standard 
  • at least 3 years relevant experience
  • a verifiable CV.

Delivery

Delivery may be in an on or off the job environment.

All materials and equipment must be of a suitable quality and quantity for candidates to achieve learning outcomes, and must comply with relevant legislation.

The class size and candidate/instructor ratio must not be more than 10:1 to allow training to be delivered in a safe manner and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.

The following delivery methods may be used in the delivery of this standard:

  • a mixture of classroom, demonstration and practice

This standard is considered to contain 51 per cent or more theoretical learning.

This standard is considered to be set at an advanced level.

Assessment

For the successful completion of training, candidates must complete an end of course practical assessment or knowledge test that measures the learning outcomes and has a pass or fail criteria.

Quality assurance

Assured

Quality assurance against this standard will require initial approval of the training organisation and their content mapped to the standard.

CITB will also conduct an approval intervention, either desk-based or centre visit, to ensure the training organisation can meet the requirements of the training standard.

Approved training organisations (ATOs) will be required to present information on records of training and assessment upon request to CITB for desk based analysis. They will also be visited annually by the CITB quality assurance team.

Renewal/refresher

Refresher training for asbestos licensed maintenance operatives should be given every year, or more frequently if:

  • work methods change
  • the type of equipment used to control exposure change
  • the type of work carried out changes significantly
  • gaps in competency are identified

It should include reviewing where things have gone wrong and sharing good practice

Where training needs dictate, refresher training may include an appropriate element of practical training, including the use of appropriate decontamination facilities, use of PPE, particularly RPE, use of control techniques and waste handling.

Approval date

To be confirmed

Review cycle

Either on request or in 3 year(s) from approval date.
