CITB new ecourse platform launched: but what will it entail?
Training and development are part of CITB’s three key strategic priorities. It is committed to working with the construction industry to provide the skills and training needed, now and into the future.
To meet industry needs, CITB has launched an online eLearning solution – CITB eCourses. In fact, the organisation created the courses in response to research conducted before the current crisis.
Now, CITB eCourses are available for employees who are unable to access traditional training. As a result, learners can work at their own pace. any time, anywhere. All they need is a computer and a few hours to study and take the exam.
The first three courses available on the CITB ecourse platform are:
- Setting up and operating a safe construction site during COVID-19
- Health and Safety Awareness
- The Site management environmental training scheme (SMETS)
The CSCS has approved the heath and safety course for applications for its labourer’s card, while the site management course is ideal for site managers and supervisors keen to enhance their knowledge. It covers legal aspects of UK construction, and employers can buy vouchers for employees eager to sign up.
