Membership to our CITB funded training group offers a number of  benefits.  Our training group is dedicated to sourcing and providing quality, tailored, training and qualifications for its members. The service we offer is also available to non CITB members because we believe that quality training and safety advice should be available to everyone who needs it.  Manufacturers, trade association representatives and local training providers can also be associate members of the Training Group.


We have three dedicated training centres in Exeter, Melksham and Hereford and can accommodate all types of training ranging from apprenticeships, NVQs, asbestos, lead, working at heights to IPAF, PASMA and much more.  So, whatever training you need, get in contact to see what we can do for you.
