The Construction Industry Safety Training Centre (CISTC) was established in 2004. CISTC specialises in health and safety training for the construction industry and is a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO).
CITB ATOs have been established to ensure that training providers deliver construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and agreed industry standard. We are a fully accredited CPCS and CITB Site Safety Plus Centre with the facilities to provide the Health and Safety and Environment touch screen test.
Our focus is on working with students, employers and our local community to address the skill shortage. Our vision is to improve the skills of current and future generations and to present them with opportunities for all routes in their construction employment. The management courses that we run also develop clear pathways to more senior roles and responsibilities within the construction industry.
CISTC provide comprehensive training to a very high standard by professionally qualified instructors. We combine this high level of training with hands-on practical experience. This is specifically designed to train candidates in a range of construction activities. All training is of the highest standard and quality. Furthermore, we price our courses competitively to enable candidates to achieve affordable, nationally recognised qualifications.
In addition, we are also a Health and Safety and Environment Touch Screen Test Centre (CSCS). Contact us today to book this in.

Our fully qualified trainers have many years of experience and will work closely with you to help you pass the first time. Furthermore, our admin staff ensure that your cards are kept up-to-date. We will notify you when renewals are due so that you don’t miss deadlines or so that your cards don’t become out of date. As we have a close working relationship with our candidates, we can complete courses in a short timescale that is mutually convenient for both the client and the candidate.
Our future aspirations include being a technical centre of excellence. We wish to work with our partners to implement the provision of virtual reality simulators, video technology and 3D scanners as well as incorporating more 360 smart vision cameras into our training fleet.

To carry out a CPCS Test, an individual must have a CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test completed within the last 2 years. If you are unsure when you last took a test please contact us. You can also check online here.
If you need to re-sit the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test, we have the facilities to do this when you are booked and attending training here at CISTC.
Our training courses last from one day to 7 days. This duration depends on the course that you are looking to book. It will also depend on the current operational experience that you have on a specific piece of plant equipment. Each course differs in the length of time and can be adapted to meet your needs.
All candidates need to bring their PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) along with photo I.D, CSCS/CPCS/NPORS registration number. For courses such as NRSWA Supervisors and Operatives candidates must bring a passport photo with them.
Full payment is required before the start of the training. We accept Credit/Debit Card(s), Cheque or Bank Transfer. If you want to pay for a course in installments/payment plan then please contact us and speak to a member of our team.
We cannot guarantee you will pass the course. However, we will ensure during your training that you are provided with everything you need to get through the tests. Our Centre currently has a 92% pass rate.
