PRESS RELEASE: AFI Training achieves CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) status
AFI’s successful Training team (UTN Training and Integrated Training Solutions) were one of the first training providers to achieve CITB Approved Training Organisation status in May 2018.
On April 1st, the CITB changed the way it supports training for the construction industry. Part of their strategic change is the creation of CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which they award to recognised training providers. UTN Training and ITS, part of the were one of the first training providers to achieve this new status, meaning they have successfully completed CITB’s stringent approval process and are now a recognised organisation which provides construction training and qualifications to the construction industry.
The CITB changes include the creation of a new CITB Training Directory which customers can access and search for UTN/ITS levy approved training throughout the UK, trusting that it is of high quality and standard. Grant support payments will now also be automated and dealt with by UTN and ITS, meaning customers no longer need to submit learners to the CITB, this will all be done easily via the ATO.
Training Division Managing Director Matt Scott said;
“Following a rigorous assessment, we are delighted that our commitment to provide professional and current training courses to the highest standard has been recognised by the CITB. We were one of the first training providers to achieve this status in May 2018. Our customers will continue to benefit from CITB grant funded training courses, as we continue to develop our portfolio of health, safety and skills training throughout the UK.”
