Live Online: AHERA Local Education Agency Designee (LEA)
WhenAug 19, 2020

(Note: times listed are for the Pacific Time Zone)
Every Local Education Agency (school board or other authority responsible for the administration of elementary and secondary schools, including charter schools) is required by AHERA to designate an individual responsible for ensuring compliance with asbestos regulations affecting schools. This FREE seven-hour webinar meets AHERA requirements for the training of that designated person.
The course covers the material contained in the two-hour Asbestos Awareness class, then adds information specifically targeted to the responsibilities of LEA designated persons. Topics addressed include the record keeping involved with management plans, how to interpret management plans, how to plan abatement jobs and calculate costs, management plan audits, and how to prepare for an EPA inspection. Additional information concerning lead, silica, and other hazardous materials that may affect school maintenance and repairs will be included.
We recommend that the designated person take this class every two to three years due to frequent changes in federal and state asbestos regulations.
Instructor: Michael Sharp, Director of Training, has been training throughout California, in other states, and internationally for 30 years, and has conducted hazardous materials inspections, provided risk assessments, and designed and monitored manage-in-place and abatement projects since 1984. Mr. Sharp taught in the UC Berkeley Center for Occupation and Environmental Health Asbestos and Lead Paint Training Program beginning in the 1990s, and served as the Director of that program in 2015 and 2016. His classes emphasize addressing real world problems with practical approaches developed from years of experience. Expect genuine case studies, audience participation, a little humor, and an awareness that regulations and best practices are not always perfectly aligned.
