May an Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) training provider combine students from different disciplines in order for these students to attend special training modules on selected topics, such as health effects?

No. Each initial and refresher training course offered for accreditation must be specific to a single discipline and not combined with training for any other discipline. Also, a person seeking accreditation in any of the five accredited Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) disciplines cannot attend two or more courses concurrently, but may attend such courses sequentially.
