The BOHS Proficiency Modules cover both theory and practical training in specific subjects related to the asbestos industry. They are aimed at those needing to demonstrate a level of proficiency to carry out a specific area of work on a daily basis.
The BOHS Proficiency modules do require maths and science knowledge and most will require the candidate to have relevant practical work experience. Students without this background may find the courses and examinations difficult. Each syllabus outlines the amount of relevant knowledge required.
The majority of courses includes a written paper and a practical assessment and candidates must pass both elements, and for some of the other modules, the qualification is not complete without a further supporting submission of a report.
