More about this course

Complete this qualification as a classroom course with one of our approved instructors, or as a virtual class using our remote training platform with a real instructor or as online video training where you navigate through a variety of videos, answer questions throughout and then complete an open response assessment to complete the online option. Gain the same regulated qualification whichever option you choose.

Option 1 - Complete a traditional classroom course through face-to-face learning

Option 2 - Complete as virtual training through Zoom or similar

Option 3 - Complete an online video e-Learning course in your time and at your own pace (must complete (1) test one and (2) test two below)

(1) Test one is built into the system and will be immediately accessible following the completion of the online e-Learning – completing this part will produce a temporary document to confirm the completion of the e-Learning course only.

(2) Test two is still completed remotely but by answering a open worded theoretical assessment – you must email compliance@protrainings.uk with the completion of your open response assessment and registration form.

Successful learners who complete option 3 will be awarded a regulated digital certificate, subject to passing an online ID check with our compliance team and completing the open response assessment.

This accredited qualification is aimed at those who work in an environment where coming into contact with such substances is likely. This includes workplaces in areas such as manufacturing, cleaning, healthcare, transport, utilities and office environments.

It provides learners with the knowledge and skills to recognise the risks associated with hazardous substances and how to control them.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health or COSHH regulations apply to any substance that could cause injury or illness to someone and covers most workplaces. If you are dealing with chemicals, even paints and toilet cleaning chemicals or creating anything that could damage someone you are responsible for COSHH.

Please be advised that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 16.

This course gives learners the opportunity to gain a formally recognised regulated qualification. If you require funding, a regulated qualification is often required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose our course leading to a regulated qualification, there are additional assessment criteria to be undertaken with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
