Course Description

180-Asbestos Fundamentals

The reader will learn what asbestos is, how it is used, and how it becomes dangerous to humans. You will have a basic understanding of asbestos in construction, the methods used to abate it, and the requirements of the United States (US) law for doing so. You will also learn how certain demolitions and renovations are regulated by US law in order to protect the public and the industry workers. Throughout the course material there will be comments regarding the desirable green or sustainable philosophy. An environmentally friendly ideology, action, standard, or process, which is more stringent than the law or regular construction standards and has a higher sensitivity toward human life or health will be herein deemed to be "green".

A good basic overview. This is a difficult subject to teach/learn. The number of regulations are overwhelming and confusing. More discussion of the excellent case studies at the end of the course would be helpful.

Good course and very informative, but the test is not well distributed. Material of 47 pages, reading up to page 28 is enough to answer up to question 23 of a test of 25 questions.

Without a glossary for all of the "Government Alphabets",it required a whole lot of extra time. The course was informative.

This is good basic information. But just like the Government, it gets bogged down in too many acronyms that are hard to follow. I think it would benefit from tables that show the different agencies, plans and programs, then list the limits of each

What is covered by the various laws is some what confusing. It was a good course for raising the need to have the appropriate professionals involved in any renovation of a suspected asbestos containing or asbestos material location.

The author needs to eliminate many of the acronyms used in the course material by spelling them out. They are all spelled out on first usage but there are so many acronyms in the text it becomes a tedious read. Another option would be an appendix listing out all the acronyms.
