Licensed Asbestos Inspector

Asbestos inspectors must also pass a rigorous state examination and hold several federal certifications. The first of these is the Certified Air Sampling Professional (CASP) certification. This certification involves passing an exam that tests the inspector’s skills in identifying, controlling, and eliminating airborne asbestos. The CASP certification is required and is issued by the EPA. Next, an asbestos inspector must also have a Certified Asbestos Inspector (CAI) certification. This tests the inspector’s abilities to inspect and survey facilities for potential asbestos contamination and measures to prevent the contamination from becoming airborne. The EPA also offers this certification. Finally, an asbestos inspector must also have an EPA)-approved asbestos safety and health certification. This is necessary for all inspectors working with hazardous materials.
