Reopening of classroom-based training

As restrictions are now reduced, we have decided to reopen our classroom-based training from September 2021. 

Covid-secure procedures from venues will be provided to all delegates who book for classroom-based training. Should circumstances change and classroom-based courses no longer be practical, where possible, the course will be offered on the same date online. Where this is not possible (Non-Licensable Work and Gas Verification), courses will be rescheduled.

To find out about our training dates as soon as they are published, please subscribe to our our monthly eAlert (latest version) by clicking on the link at the top of this page. To be added to a waitlist for a particular course, please email

Our eLearning courses (including Asbestos Awareness, Sustainable Remediation Appraisal, Soil and Groundwater Risk Assessment and Brownfield Site Investigation) are always available.

The Gas Protection Verification Accreditation Scheme (GPVS) is a scheme that seeks to raise standards in membrane inspection, verification and reporting and provide all stakeholders involved in land contamination management with confidence that risks associated with ground gases have been adequately managed. The scheme applies to both the practical installation of the gas mitigation measures and to the verification reporting process.

To support the publication of the Joint Industry Working Group’s Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012: Interpretation for Managing and Working with Asbestos in Soil and Construction and Demolition (C&D) materials: Industry Guidance (shortened name CAR-SOILTM), CL:AIRE has launched a package of training courses across the UK.

CAR-SOILTM is the authoritative document interpreting the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012 or the Regulations) as applied to working with ground materials contaminated by asbestos, having been prepared with the support of the Health and Safety Executive. It presents the definitive explanation of how the legal requirements of CAR 2012 have been interpreted to apply to work with asbestos contaminated soil and C&D materials.  

The guidance in CAR-SOILTM is underpinned by the fundamental requirements expressed in the Regulations, in relation to the protection of employees from risks related to exposure to asbestos, but is set within a carefully considered framework designed specifically for soil and C&D materials.  

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, public training for CAR-SOILTM is not being scheduled, however company inhouse training is available for a minimum of 8 people. Please enquire through Help Desk.

Please check the location as some courses are online and some classroom-based.

The DoW CoP provides a clear, consistent and efficient process which enables the reuse of excavated materials on-site or their movement between sites.

Use of the DoW CoP supports the sustainable and cost effective development of land. It can provide an alternative to Environmental Permits or Waste Exemptions.

The DoW CoP enables:

  • the direct transfer and reuse of clean naturally occurring soil materials between sites
  • the conditions to support the establishment/operation of fixed soil treatment facilities
  • the reuse of both contaminated/uncontaminated materials on their site of origin and between sites within defined Cluster projects
