Who we are

Who we are


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.

Our Training

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 Aims

Our Values

With a pass rate of 92%, we pride ourselves on excellent customer service.

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 We will notify you when renewals are due so that you don’t miss deadlines or so that your cards don’t become out of date.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.


CISTC is situated near Farnham, Surrey and is 10 minutes from junction 5 of the M3. We hold our training courses in classrooms and our practical based courses are based here at our head office also. We can tailor our training facilities, training rooms and conference facilities to your needs.
