ECITB training products, qualifications and standards
Working with a range of employer groups, the ECITB has carried out a comprehensive review to ensure diversity and inclusion principles run through all of our products and services.
ECITB National Occupational Standards (NOS): ECITB is currently updating our NOS suites – to date, twelve NOS suites across engineering construction craft and technician disciplines have been updated to incorporate D&I principles. The NOS set the performance and knowledge that underpins ECITB’s training standards, qualifications and courses and so, this ensures D&I is being embeded throughout ECITB’s training products.
