What does this mean?
A CITB Approved Training Organisation - or 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.
Why is it important to book training with a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO)?
CITB determine which courses are eligible for grants, if you’re an employer in the construction industry you’ll want to be able to claim grants when your employees attend these courses. To be able to do this you must be registered with CITB and training to be booked through an ATO.
WJB Training are required to upload delegate achievements to the Construction Training Register within 10 working days of successful completion of an eligible training course, to trigger your grant payment
WJB Training will require the following information which includes
• Delegate’s name/address
• Email address
• NI number
• Levy number
This can be recorded at the time of the booking or by completing the paperwork at the start of the course
What is the Construction Training Register (CTR)?
The Construction Training Register (CTR) is an online database containing the records of thousands of construction workers' training achievements and qualifications.
As an employer, you will be able to:
• check the skills and competence of your workforce and new recruits, helping to confirm that they have the right skills and are ready to work
• give feedback on a CITB Approved Training Organisation's (ATO) service and quality of training, and
• mark an ATO as a favourite training provider.
As a construction worker or learner, you will be able to check the details of your completed construction training courses and qualifications.
Over time, these records will enable CITB to build a comprehensive picture of skills training across Great Britain. CITB can then concentrate on where it needs to give training support to employers and specialist sectors within the industry.
