Important Requirements:

  • Prior to the course, the employer must register as a “Signing Authority” with the MTCU (otherwise the training may be deemed void). Contact your local MTCU office to arrange this.
  • An individual must have Type 3 Asbestos Abatement Worker certification before taking this course.
