Course Type: Course
Course Length: 1 day
This course is intended for those who will be supervisors in Type 3 asbestos work operations. The course content follows the curriculum set by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities (MTCU) for the Type 3 Asbestos Abatement Supervisor Training Program (AAS 253S) to prepare the participants to write the AAS 253S exam.
This course is separate from the MTCU’s Type 3 Asbestos Abatement Worker course. Please contact us if you require guidance.
A summary of the course content is as follows:
- Regulatory knowledge required by a Type 3 supervisor to ensure compliance and safety of workers
- The equipment, layout and setup requirements for Type 3 work areas

This course also includes:
- Scenarios for interactive discussions
- Tour of a fully functional mock-up of a Type 3 asbestos work area
- 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.
- Before taking the AAS 253S exam, the individual must have completed a construction supervisory basics course (formerly through the Canadian Construction Association, now offered through Infrastructure Health & Safety Association).
- The MTCU’s AAS 253S exam is administered separately, at Ontario colleges. Documentation for taking the exam consists of paperwork provided by the MTCU and Pinchin’s course certificate.
