Training

Helping ATO’s help you

Since April 2018, CITB have been making regular improvements to the Construction Training Directory (CTD), and Construction Training Register (CTR). This means that we’re reducing the amount of time it takes Approved Training Organisations (ATO’s) to carry out administration tasks on the systems.

Our newest update is the bulk upload of schedules. This means that your Training Providers can:
 

  • Schedule multiple courses at once
  • Create, amend or cancel training schedules in bulk
  • Reduce the amount of time it takes to upload training schedules.


Following this update, you should experience an increase in the number of courses available on the CTD.
Find a course by visiting myportal.citb.co.uk and clicking on the ‘Construction Training Directory’ option.
