Management of Asbestos in Buildings (Including Asbestos Removal)

The BOHS P405 is for people that own or manage non-domestic premises and have a legal duty under CAR 2012, Regulation 4 to manage identified asbestos within their premises, and to protect those working within them from exposure to asbestos. The effective management of identified asbestos in buildings is an essential and challenging area of work, often requiring the procurement of services from asbestos surveyors, removal contractors and analysts.

BOHS P405 – Management of Asbestos in Buildings (Including Asbestos Removal)

P405 – Management of Asbestos in Buildings (including Asbestos Removal) is the industry-standard qualification for those whose work involves asbestos management, such as duty holders, building managers, responsible persons, and those who look after asbestos management data. It provides the background knowledge required to manage identified asbestos in buildings and ensures that appropriate management processes are followed and documented properly. It also gives you the knowledge to make better procurement decisions, and to monitor the quality of the services provided by other asbestos professionals through understanding the standards and procedures that you should be following.  

The P405 management of asbestos qualification conforms with the training requirements outlined in CAR 2012, Regulation 4 and L143 – Managing and working with asbestos Approved Code of Practice. 

Who is it for?

The qualification is suitable for duty holders, or anyone who assists them in the discharge of their responsibilities. It is also suitable for anyone who: 

  • Manages asbestos in buildings 
  • Procures asbestos-related services 
  • Wishes to progress into asbestos management from asbestos surveying or analysis 


The level of a qualification indicates the relative complexity and depth of knowledge and skills required to attain the qualification.  

This is a level 4 qualification in the BOHS qualifications framework, equivalent to NVQ Level 4 and HNC. 

How is it delivered?

The P405 course will normally run over four consecutive days and include 28 hours of teaching followed by examinations on the fifth day. The course can be delivered more flexibly, such as on one day per week for four weeks, but should still include 28 hours of teaching. In addition to the teaching time, you will be expected to undertake at least 4 hours of independent study in your own time.
