We’re an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) for the CITB
MECsafe are pleased to announce that we are a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO). This means we are now 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.
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.
The data generated by the system will allow CITB to target funding on the areas of most need to the construction industry.
On successful completion of an applicable 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.
