• Did You Know We Offer Evening & Weekend Courses and Courses in Romanian, Hungarian, German and Polish?....

    We understand people's workload may deter them from wanting to, or being in a position to sit some of our training courses. With this in mind, we are offering selected classroom based courses during the evenings and weekends.

    We also offer selected courses in the above languages, which is extremely rare. Please contact us for more information on these matters - 01189 700200.

  • Is your company a CITB LEVY Payer??

    For all companies that pay CITB LEVY, CITP Ltd will give you the LEVY rate when booking a CPCS test. This in turn means you will not be incurring the cost to train your workforce, as you will receive this back via CITB. With regards to NVQ's, we will not be beaten on price. Provide us with a cheaper like for like quote and we will beat it. To add to this, we hold direct claims status, which means the wait for your card is nowhere near that of a company without DCS status.

    For more info, please contact us on 01189 700200.
