Training isn’t just important to any company, it’s vital. Training can save lives, boost productivity and increase profit!Individual groups source, provide and arrange a wide range of training required by their employer members, who must all work to HSG33, Health & Safety in Roofwork as defined by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
Several of the Groups have their own training centres, with the others having access to local and regional training facilities.From time to time, CITB offers Training Groups the opportunity to bid for funding to support training which can result in training being either free or heavily subsidised.
Find the right CSCS Card for you
Groups also help their members through the maze of CSCS cards, assisting with the necessary training and HSE tests.A CSCS card provides the construction industry with a means of identity and proof of competence for individuals working on site.
There are nearly 2 million cardholders in the UK and most major contractors, homebuilders and local authorities require employees and sub-contractors to hold a valid CSCS card before allowing them access to site.
