Before you submit your application, make sure that you are able to meet all the requirements of becoming a CITB Approved Training Organisation.

You will also need to make sure you can meet the requirements for each CITB product that you are planning to offer.

Once you are confident you will be able to meet the requirements, please complete the CITB ATO application form.

We will be in touch within 10 working days of receiving your completed form.

ITC review update

Internet Test Centre (ITC) applications remain on hold. The ITC Product Office is not considering any new expressions of interest, applications or appeals. 

In 2017, CITB undertook a review of our Internet Test Centre network. The review concluded that there were enough centres to meet the demands of industry. We are regularly monitoring the situation and if we find that more test centres are needed we will consult with industry.

Any updates or changes will be published on the website. Please email itc@citb.co.uk if you have any further questions.

PLEASE NOTE: applications to become a centre for other CITB products: Site Safety Plus, Short Courses, CPCS Test Centres, and Be Fair Framework are still open.
