Changes to CITB...

On Friday 25th May, the new GDPR Law comes into force.


We have always treated your data with the utmost respect and security has always been paramount to our business.


We have since revised our Privacy Policy - which can be found here!











CITB is changing the way it supports training for the construction industry. Part of this change involves the launch of new products and services.



CITB is leading the creation of a list of training standards which come into effect from April 2018. This will mean an individual’s skills will be transferable across the construction industry in Great Britain. To enable this to happen, CITB is launching new services for both training organisations and employers.


These services will provide a single place for employers to:


  • find industry approved training

  • search for their employee’s training achievements, and

  • receive automated grant payments to employers.



Construction Training Directory


A searchable online directory of construction training courses, tests and qualifications delivered by Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) to defined training standards that have been developed with input from industry.


Employers can choose a provider based on location, price and timing, making it easy to select a course that best meet their needs.


Approved Training Organisations (ATOs)


An organisation delivering construction training courses and qualifications to a defined training standard, who have successfully completed the CITB approval process.


These could include commercial training providers, in-house training departments, and educational establishments.


TUTS are already going through this approval process, so we will be in position ready for your training/testing requirements. 


Automated grant payments


On successful completion of a course, an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) will confirm the learner’s achievement, upload the details onto the Construction Training Register, thereby triggering the automated grant process.


This will speed up the payment process and remove the need for employers to complete paperwork.
