ECITB launches new Global arm to increase training offer
The UK Government-sponsored skills body the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board has today revealed plans to expand its overseas operations to meet international demand for engineering training with the launch of ECITB Global.
The ECITB‘s industry leading training has equipped thousands of workers (30,000 outside the UK in 2019) with the skills to work safely and effectively on engineering construction sites around the world. The organisation seeks to reach out further with our training and development expertise to help improve the delivery of energy and infrastructure projects and the lives of the people who build and maintain them.
For decades the ECITB has been dedicated to developing and qualifying the engineering construction workforce within the UK in a wide range of technical, craft, professional and managerial disciplines.
International operations have grown steadily too with a current network of 42 Licenced Training Providers operating in 25 countries in three core regions – The Middle East, East Africa and South East Asia.
Having provided training to some of the largest corporations in the world, ECITB Global is looking to extend the reach of the international business into new territories such as Southern Asia and South America.
ECITB Global will build on the UK’s strong reputation for training and testing to meet the wider needs of projects in sectors including oil and gas, power, renewable energy, nuclear, chemical, pharmaceutical, food, water treatment and all other construction projects. It will remain in its entirety an integral part of the ECITB and subject to the same governance and scrutiny that drive the organisation’s high standards and reputation for quality.
