Once we have verified the information that you uploaded, we will confirm your status as a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO). You will need to pay your annual ATO fees at that time.
We will then expand your permission on the CTD so you can build your profile and list the courses that you will be offering. The directory will be available to employers to search for courses in April 2018.
