Overview

What is SEATS Training?

By completing the CITB SEATS (Site Environmental Awareness Training Scheme) training course, you'll understand all relevant legislation that affects the environment in the building and construction industry. With the knowledge that the SEATS course will provide you with, you will be able to identify, control and reduce the environmental impact of your work. Subcontractors are often asked to prove to major contractors their understanding of their environmental impact and their dedication to reducing that impact. The CITB SEATS course covers the environmental aspects of the new HS&E touch screen test and will give you the proof you need for major contractors of your environmental knowledge.

Your CITB SSSTS course certificate will be renewed and valid for 5 years.
