UKATA is the leading authority on asbestos training, a not for profit training association established in 2008, taking over from the HSE in the role of ensuring the highest of standards for Asbestos and therefore to be recognised as the asbestos industry’s most eminent training association. Today UKATA is firmly established and recognised as the most eminent training association. The brand of UKATA is instantly recognisable and is respected for the exacting, robust standards in asbestos training delivered by its Members in accordance with current HSE Legislation.
UKATA is committed to both maintaining and improving higher standards of asbestos training through ongoing monitoring, auditing and testing of UKATA-approved training providers. The Construction Industry Training Body (CITB) have accepted UKATA as a recognised organisation for asbestos training standards in November 2018. This allows UKATA Members to apply (at no cost) as a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO).
In May 2016 UKATA registered and was subsequently accepted as Members of the CPD Registration Service. All UKATA Syllabi are registered with the CPD Registration Service and all UKATA Syllabi were registered. Established in 1996, The CPD Certification Service is the independent CPD accreditation centre working across all sectors, disciplines and further learning applications. Thousands of UKATA CPD training courses, events, e-learning programs, conferences, workshops and seminars are formally accredited by them every year adding significant value for audiences and providers alike.
Existing UKATA Members will know first-hand the robust structure that has been developed throughout the years to confidently demonstrate that all Members meet the equality standards that UKATA has become respected for throughout the asbestos and construction industry.
The success of UKATA has been driven by industry, who acknowledge that the standards delivered by UKATA Members offers assurance that delegates have received quality training from a provider who has proven competency at the highest level.
