Asbestos Licenses:

Except in rare cases, asbestos workers, contractors and supervisors must obtain licenses for all asbestos projects. Asbestos inspectors and project designers must obtain licenses for asbestos projects in school, public, or commercial buildings. Asbestos management planners must obtain licenses for projects in school buildings.  Licenses are not required for employees if they are properly trained and the employer is exempt from the permit requirements. 

The application shall be on an original form provided by the Division of Labor. Photocopies are not acceptable. The applicant must sign the form in two places. 

The license applicant shall submit a copy of the training certificate from a trainer approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The training certificate shall state the name of the course successfully completed, the name of the training provider, and the dates of the training. 

To qualify for a license in Iowa, the applicant must have successfully completed training as established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  The EPA Region 7 approved training providers are listed below:
