The NYS Asbestos Handler Initial is a 32-hour training course which educates the Student on the use of personal protective equipment, proper decontamination procedures, the sequence of events leading to abatement, abatement methods, clean-up and tent/glove-bag procedures and recordkeeping requirements.  The course will also involve workshop activities including Tent Building, Decontamination System, Work Area Preparation, Glove-bag Practice, Removal Activities, Respiratory Protection/PPE and Clean-up & Disposal.  Upon completion of this course, the Student will be licensed to handle any type of asbestos-containing material through removal, encapsulation, enclosure or repair. This course also meets the requirements for the Nassau County Environmental Hazard Remediation Provider & Technician Licenses.


As an added value to our Students, CNS can handle your NYSDOL Certification Application submission for a nominal $20 handling fee plus the $50 fee charged by the NYSDOL to obtain your certification.
