"Save Money On Training"

Essex Construction Training Association have negotiated discounts with a number of local training providers that we are able to pass on to our members.  In some cases this can be as much as 15% off the training provider's list price. 


According to the CITB, this financial year alone we have been able to save our members almost £11000 in training costs so being a member of ECTA is certainly worth it.  A lot of this training is further supported by grants that can be claimed back from the CITB following course achievement.

Training can take place all across the Essex area and sometimes beyond and we will do our best to arrange venues that best suit our members and their employees.

Our most popular courses this year so far are;

  • First Aid at Work

  • First Aid at Work Refresher

  • Emergency First Aid at Work

  • SMSTS Refresher

  • Towers for Users


but we have organised training for another 16 different courses so far, including SMSTS, SSSTS, IOSH, Temporary Works and various Working at Height courses.

There are a number of different types of training courses available;

  • public : your learner attends a course with other learners from other companies,

  • e-Learning : courses completed online, often using Zoom or Teams, at home or at work,

  • group : courses organised by ECTA, who will arrange the trainer and venue (often with refreshments),

  • in-house : dedicated courses run at your workplace solely for the benefit of the member's employees.


If you are a member of ECTA please contact us at for further information regarding prospective bookings or, if your company is not yet a member and you want to take advantage of these discounts, provided you are CITB registered, please get in touch for a membership form.

Group courses - courses run by ECTA. 
We source a trainer, supply the venue, usually provide refreshments & often lunch if it's a full day course.

If you are interested in ECTA organising any group courses, please get in touch with your requirements and we'll see what we can do.  Please remember though that to put on a course we do need to confirm a trainer and a venue before opening it up to bookings so the date we arrange might not always be convenient. 


So, when sending us your requests for courses, if at all possible please advise us of approximately when you would be looking for your delegates to attend.

Current 'in-house' courses - organised and run by ECTA solely for the benefit of member's employees.  
The trainer comes to a venue organised by you.

We currently have an IOSH Safety for Executives & Directors course booked for one of or members at their offices so, if we can be of any help to you organising some internal training, please get in touch.

To enquire about or book any of these courses, please contact the

Group Training Officer Lindsey Willson on 01206 363794 or at

Courses are at cost price but are often subsidised by ECTA.

Full Membership is open to CITB registered organisations who are In-Scope.
