Students have praised the instructors in previous courses. Jeff R. commented, "[The instructor] was passionate and insightful in his presentation of what is often confusing and contradictory government regulations. It's dry material and his commitment to the environment infused the class with meaning. The hands on portion was surprisingly effective in pulling together the information. I am currently involved in two projects which require my certification. I was able to thoroughly and confidently communicate to my clients the risks of exposure, what we are doing to minimize that, and most importantly, why it is worth the cost."

Nathaniel J. agreed, stating, "The information was comprehensive, easy to follow and not overwhelming. The delivery of the material was great. [The instructor] did a very good job overall getting us prepared."

AEHS offers several courses for asbestos certification. One of their most popular courses is the Asbestos Contractor/Supervisor course. The Asbestos Contractor/Supervisor training is for any individual who performs supervision of persons permitted to enter the restricted and regulated asbestos abatement work area. The supervisor is also responsible for performing the duties of the OSHA competent person for the asbestos project, consistent with current EPA and OSHA regulations. Training for asbestos abatement professionals is required under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA), which is the authority under which EPA issued the EPA Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan.
