Implement safe lead paint and asbestos work practices in the painting industry (CPCCPD3031A)
If you’re painting or decorating a property built prior to 1970, then chances are you may disturb paint containing lead, or asbestos sheeting.
If not handled safely, these materials can be hazardous to humans and animals.
Professional management of lead and asbestos hazards is crucial. That’s why we offer the following course in lead and asbestos management.
Online – maximum of 16 hours
Learners should allow between 4-8 hours for learning
Learners should allow between 2 and 4 hours to complete the theory assessment
Learners are required to allow between 2 and 4 hours to complete the practical assessment activities at Salisbury
Face to face – 16 hours (2 days face to face)
4-8 hours of learning
4-8 hours to complete theory and practical assessment activities at Salisbury
This unit of competency can be offered via two modes of delivery consisting of:
Online combined with face to face (for practical assessment purposes)
All learning and the theory assessment is completed online through MPA Online followed by the completion of a face to face practical assessment
All learners must either attend our facilities at the Construction Training Centre, Salisbury for the practical assessment components or pre-organise
for a trainer to conduct a workplace training visit.
Assessments consist of a range of interactive activities including:
Audio and visual response to scenarios
Written tests – short answer and multiple choice questions
The theory assessment is completed online prior to the learner attending our facility (or trainer going on site) to complete practical assessment
The system is self-marking and requires 100% satisfactory performance.
The practical assessment component for this unit of competency requires the learner demonstrate theoretical and practical application of knowledge
and skills to plan, prepare for and conduct the removal of lead-based paint and containment of or disposal of toxic materials (including
lead-based paint and asbestos substrates). Assessment will be conducted using simulation methods to minimise the exposure of learners to
toxic substances in the training environment.
