IMPORTANT - Internet Test Centre (ITC) applications on hold - 25th November 2016
CITB are currently undertaking a review of our current testing capacity against industry testing demand, both now and in the future, to see if we have sufficient number of centres in the right geographical locations to cope with the anticipated testing demand. Due to this review CITB have made the decision to put applications for becoming an Internet Test Centre (ITC) on hold until June 2017.
All companies that have expressed an interest, sent in an initial enquiry form or been sent an application form will be informed once the review has been completed and the outcome of this. Please be patient with us whilst this is being undertaken and if there are any changes that may delay the above timeline, CITB will communicate with you as soon as possible.
All information around your query about becoming an ITC will be held securely until an outcome is decided, however if at any time you feel that you do not wish to carry on with the process of becoming an ITC, please do contact the us at the following address so that we may remove you from our data base: firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE: applications to become a centre for other CITB products: Site Safety Plus, CPCS Test Centre, CSkills Awards Qualifications and CSkills Award Short Courses are still open.

Insurance Requirements Adjusted - 08 July 2016
We have noted that the insurance requirements detailed in the Form(s) of Agreement are incorrect, these have been amended accordingly as follows:
- Professional Indemnity Insurance: £2 million
- Public Liability Insurance: £5 million
- Employer’s Liability Insurance: minimum as required by law
These amounts should be the minimum cover centres should have per claim or series of claims.
All of the Form(s) of Agreement have been updated to reflect these changes.
For those who have already printed out and returned their signed Form(s) of Agreement, you do not need to take any action; CITB will amend your Agreement(s) by hand and will return these to you.
