Training & Continuing Education
Why Choose ABS Environmental, Inc.?
A proven leader in training, ABS Environmental, Inc. offers top-quality continuing education instruction for architects, engineers, environmental scientists, insurance personnel, and attorneys. The company’s open classes cater to individual students and are held at our headquarters in historic Charleston, South Carolina. We also conduct convenient on-site training for companies with multiple personnel. In addition, we regularly develop and conduct ad hoc courses based upon industry demand or client request.
Our asbestos division is well known throughout the southeast for its first rate AHERA-accredited supervisor, inspector, management planner, and project designer courses. For students with multiple AHERA credentials, we schedule AHERA classes successively, so students can complete their refresher coursework within a few days. Our A/E instructors make difficult concepts accessible to a wide range of students. Using a combination of theory, case review, and hands-on sessions, students develop confidence in their knowledge of building performance.
The ABS Environmental, Inc. Training Department
All ABS Environmental, Inc. asbestos trainers and courses are accredited by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), and each of our trainers has an in-depth knowledge of federal and state regulations including the EPA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and many state agencies. Because of our expertise in both the field and the classroom, we are often approached by agencies and asked to comment on pending changes to regulations. As a result, we are typically aware of regulatory changes before they are enacted.
While there are several choices for training in the southeast, the training team at ABS has set itself apart from the competition by providing the highest quality training with substantial value added services. Many of our students and contract clients have been training with our instructors for over a decade.
