Asbestos Abatement Worker 253W Training Program

Supervisor Basic Occupational Health and Safety Awareness


  • Participants must wear appropriate footwear.
  • Prior to this course, the employer must register as a “Signing Authority” with the MTCU.
  • Upon completing this course, each participant is provided with a certificate as proof of the training. ACUTE’s certificate is used only as proof of the training in order to take the 253S AAS exam at a college. The actual proof of Type 3 Asbestos Abatement Supervisor certification comes from the MTCU after the participant has passed the exam.

For this course we can conduct the training at your facility or at our own training facility, whichever will suit your needs best. There are some great benefits to both approaches. By completing your training on-site we can save your staff travel time, by completing your training at our facility you can benefit from our spacious training room, our state of the art hands on training space and full use of our break room.
