With the COVID-19 pandemic playing such a large part in companies moving more into the digital arena, the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) reacted quickly to ensure safety for all whilst still ensuring thorough training for candidates, changing the scheme rules to allow delivery of CITB Site Safety Plus Courses online in virtual classroom formats.
The remote delivery of Site Safety Plus courses online in virtual classrooms became possible under CITB’s “Appendix Q – Emergency Training Provision Scheme Rules”, which were raised in response to the current Coronavirus Pandemic. These are still classed as temporary arrangements and will apply during the pandemic; at this point, the CITB have extended site safety training online classroom formats into 2021 and we will continue to schedule available course dates until an end date is announced
That said, whilst taking CITB courses online have been (and still are) a very attractive option through these uncertain times, there are now more conventional classroom courses dates being released and we are taking enquiries and bookings for these courses as well as the CITB online course options. The ability to run face-to-face courses will be very much dependent on Government advice at the time when courses are scheduled to start. With appropriate social distancing and other control measures it is anticipated that all programmed conventional classroom courses will run, but the alternative of taking Site Safety Plus courses online remains a popular option.
Undertaking and passing CITB site safety training courses remains critical to many who have roles on site and helps to demonstrate competence. Sitting these CITB courses online means that candidates can still receive their training and achieve their qualifications whilst helping to limit the spread of Coronavirus.
