We are really pleased to announce that CISTC has been given Approved Training Organisation Status (ATO) status by the CITB.

But what does this mean?

This means that you can be confident that you are getting the best training possible from our expert trainers, while here at the centre. The CITB is changing the way it supports training for the construction industry. They are creating a list of training standards which come into effect from April. In doing this all training providers must now gain CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) status.

What is a CITB Approved Training Organisation – ATO?

ATO stands for Approved Training Organisation.

CITB have established ATO status to ensure trainers are delivering construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and industry-agreed standard. Informing consumers that the training provider is authorised to give training and is compliant with the CITB standard.

The CITB is launching new services for both training bodies and employers. These services will provide a single place for employers to:

  • Find industry approved training.
  • Search for their employee’s training achievements.
  • Receive automated grant payments to employers.

We are working closely with the CITB to ensure our training is to the highest standard. All of this combined assists businesses and employees to get the most from their training and helps track individual’s training qualifications.
