Certification and Training

The State of Colorado requires that all individuals performing asbestos related activities in single-family residential dwellings, schools, and public and commercial buildings in Colorado be certified by the State in the discipline in which they are working. Individuals wishing to become certified must apply to the Division using the Individual Certification Application, submit the appropriate fee, and pass the appropriate state exam for the discipline in which they wish to be certified. Applicants need to supply the Division with the originals of their training certificates from their Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved training courses. The Division cannot accept copies.


Upon successful completion of the State exam, individuals seeking Air Monitoring Specialist, Worker or Supervisor certification will be issued a State Asbestos Photo Identification Card. Air Monitoring Specialist, Building Inspectors, Management Planners and Project Designers will receive a Certificate.


Companies wishing to conduct abatement of friable asbestos-containing materials in Colorado must become a General Abatement Contractor with the Division prior to starting any work. The Contractor Certification Application is available in downloadable format.
