Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

California Man Charged with Fraudulent Asbestos Training Program

A California man has been charged with operating a scam involving lying about how much training students of the program were actually receiving.  Under California law, asbestos removal workers have to pass a training course which runs four days and has eight hours of training per day, with a total of no fewer than 14 hours of hands-on training.  According to prosecutors, though, the class in question met for as little as 25 minutes a day.  Moreover, the man gave out the answers to the test at the end of the course, going so far as to filling out the test for a student who didn’t show up that day.

The man was charing companies hundreds of dollars for the class without providing any acutal training, compounding the dangers of asbestos exposure by putting undertrained workers into the industry of removing it.
