CITB introduce ATO’s ……..

What is a CITB ATO and what are the benefits?

CITB is changing the way it supports training for the construction industry. Part of this strategic change is the creation of CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) status that is awarded to training providers.

What is a CITB ATO?

A CITB ATO is an organisation which provides construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and industry-agreed training standard.

An ATO could be, for example a commercial training provider, a construction employer’s in-house training department, or an educational establishment.

What are the benefits of being a CITB ATO?

When you are a CITB ATO:

  • you will be recognised by CITB as well as the British construction industry as a training provider who can deliver good quality training that meets the industry approved standards
  • you will have access to the Construction Training Directory, a powerful marketing tool which is open to all who are interested in construction training
  • you can tap into this market who are looking for CITB grant funded training courses on the Directory
  • you can stand out from your competitors as you will be part of CITB’s automated grant payments system, making it easier for employers to book courses with you for their workers and be reimbursed for it.

And if you are an existing CITB centre delivering CITB products, you will not incur an additional charge.
