All courses within the CSS Scheme have been approved and mapped by CITB allowing for grant claims.

How we can help

We appreciate how complicated it can be to try to arrange training, I’m Emma I’ve been with Kentra for 18 years and still have to look up ratios and variations as all the courses are different.  So please, drop us a line, get in touch we are happy to discuss all the options, we like nothing more than to get a timetable drawn up on a spreadsheet to help our customers organise what’s needed.
