This update aims to provide all the latest information provided by Awarding Bodies, CITB, Industry Stakeholders, Training Providers and Card Schemes in relation to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak and the potential impact on Training and Development activity across the Construction Industry.
If requalification training cannot take place for reasons associated directly with coronavirus, such as closure of training facilities, unavailability of trainers/assessors or by complying with other government advice on isolation and social distancing, it may be reasonable and practicable to extend the validity of current certificates.
Please see attached full list COVID 19 Interim Training Renewal Guide. Information will be added and updated on a regular basis.
Anyone needing to utilise this extension period should be able to state clearly their reasons for delaying requalification training and demonstrate steps they have taken to undertake the training, if required.
To prevent accident and injury, the duty remains to ensure that staff are adequately trained and competent to carry out duties and to operate machinery and equipment.
