CITB logo to replace CSkills Awards logo on SSP materials
We would like to reassure everyone our non-regulated Site Safety Plus (SSP) courses will remain part of CITB, following our decision to sell CSkills Awards to NOCN. All SSP centres continue to be approved centres. You will shortly notice the CITB logo replacing the CSkills Awards logo on all SSP certificates. We will gradually update and re-issue all relevant centre documentation.
Please remove any CSkills Awards logos you have in use in relation to SSP by 1 August 2017. Guidelines explaining where and how you are able to use the CITB logo for SSP courses were recently emailed to all SSP centres.
If you would like to read more about the sale of CSkills Awards to NOCN you can read our press release.
