The Proficiency Modules cover both theory and practical training in specific subjects, and are aimed at those needing to demonstrate a level of proficiency to carry out the area of work covered by the Module.
These examinations are usually taken at the end of training courses run by independent Course Providers who are registered with BOHS (The Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection).
In most cases, the examination includes a written paper and a practical assessment and candidates must pass both elements, and for some of the Modules, the qualification is not complete without a further supporting submission of a report.
