Levy Payers: Please Read. Update on CITB Training Standards
As you may be aware, CITB have now launched the new training standards for the initial 8 plant categories.
The only two that affect the training/ testing we deliver at the moment is A40 and A73. All our other categories will remain unchanged.
CITB have granted a 2 month grace period before the changes become mandatory.
31st July to 30th September
We will not be changing the way we train and test.
A40: We will have a maximum of 4 delegates per 4 day course. The cost will remain at £995 + vat per person.
A73: Maximum 3 delegates per 3 day course. The cost will remain at £995 + vat per person.
This means that the training element of the grant cannot be claimed.
However the testing element of the grant can still be claimed as usual. The only change will be that it will not be automatically awarded. CITB are asking employers to manually claim the grant for any testing that is completed in this period only.
You can find more information about this process here. This is only available until 30th September 2023. After this date, the new standards will be the only way to claim Grants.
1st October onwards
Will remain unchanged- 3 delegates, 3 days, £995 + vat per person
You can claim £300 per delegate *t&cs apply please see CITB website for more details.
