P604 Course overview

This advanced proficiency LEV Training Course builds on the existing knowledge and expertise of delegates who will have completed the P601 LEV Training course module.

The tutor on this highly inter-active course is Bill Cassells. Those who have attended the OXYL8 P601, P602 etc LEV courses will know that Bill brings a fresh approach to the subject together with his extensive knowledge of all things LEV — all of which is delivered in his own lively, supportive and informal style.

The P604 course is particularly suited to LEV topic specialists, Health and Safety or Occupational Hygiene professionals, Managers, Supervisors and Building Services engineers (who have completed P601).

This is a four day LEV training course with self study elements (evenings) and a Practical Assessment (undertaken by the tutor). The single (open book) Exam, which consists of a mix of 35 short answer Theory and Practical questions, is on the final day .


***NOTE*** From 2018 it is a BOHS requirement that delegates for P604 should have completed P601 (or at minimum have passed both exams and be preparing Reports submissions) prior to attending.

Delegates should also possess a good working knowledge of HSE’s Guidance on LEV, HSG258 and must also be competent in basic maths/algebra (areas, square roots etc.)

No other specialist knowledge is required.

Who should attend?

Engineers, supervisors, managers, health and safety professional and technical staff who have day to day dealings with the specification, design, testing, contract management, and occupational hygiene aspects of LEV plant and who have previously completed the P601 LEV course module.

Towards professional recognition?

Success in P604 can be added to other BOHS modules e.g. P601, P602, P603 and W201 (in various combinations) to meet qualification and membership requirements of Institute of LEV Engineers (ILEVE).

It can also be used towards gaining the BOHS ‘Certificate of Competence in Control’ qualification which permits successful candidate to use the letters ‘CoC Control’ after their name. See BOHS for more details.

NOTE:  P604 has been re-grade at NQS Level 5
