Public Online
3B Training offer a variety of courses via Online Learning.

Remote Health and Safety Awareness courses are delivered online via a virtual classroom using Zoom. The key benefit of this is that it eliminates the need to travel to attend the course, saving time and money.

Delegates remotely join the course using the link provided, either from home or in the office. However, they will need a computer or laptop with a screen, camera, microphone and access to the internet to attend.

The course is delivered by a live trainer who covers the same content as they would in a classroom environment. Delegates are provided with a downloadable digital copy of the coursebook, and the final exam is completed online.

Like the in-person classroom courses, there will be up to 12 delegates on the course at any one time, all of whom will be able to see each other and interact via video or webchat. 

The remote CITB Health & Safety Awareness course is available to book online or over the phone and we have multiple public remote learning dates where it’s possible to book one or multiple spaces.

3B Training can deliver courses for a group of your employees in-house at your site or venue of your choice.

We can arrange for the CITB Health and Safety Awareness to be delivered as an in-house course specifically for your delegates. This is done via remote learning at one of our venues or a venue of your choosing, such as your office board room or a local conference centre.

In-house training is a popular option for larger companies as it can be delivered on-site, and delegates can interact and discuss company-specific examples during the training. 

Please note: There must be a minimum of 4 delegates and no more than 12 delegates.

3B Training offer a variety of eLearning courses.

This course is also available to complete online via eLearning.

The eLearning course is an ideal alternative for those who don’t have time to attend a set course date and prefer to complete the course independently.

This delivery format is also a good option for anyone who finds learning difficult in the classroom.
