(h) Texas law and rules. Persons seeking an asbestos license or worker registration with the department who submit out-of-state training as a means of qualification must successfully complete an approved three-hour course on Texas asbestos health protection law which shall be conducted by a training sponsor licensed by the department. This requirement shall be completed prior to commencing any licensed asbestos activity within the state.

(i) Refresher training. All disciplines shall receive refresher training annually. Satisfactory completion of such training shall be a condition of renewal, and evidence of satisfactory completion shall be included in the annual renewal application. No refresher training can be accredited if the training course for licensure or registration was never completed. Refresher training courses for all disciplines shall be in accordance with the MAP and shall adequately address and include:

  (1) federal and Texas regulations;

  (2) state-of-the-art developments for the topic specialty of the course; and

  (3) review of the training manual and key aspects of the initial training course.

Demonstration testing may also be included as part of the written examination. A person seeking initial accreditation in a specific discipline must pass the written examination for that discipline in order to receive accreditation. For example, a person seeking accreditation as an abatement project designer must pass the written examination for an abatement project designer. Training providers shall develop written examinations that conform to the following requirements for accreditation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Title II.
