Hi Brian.

I was talking to CITB a few weeks ago and they said that because there is a difference in the interpretation of the requirements between CITB and C&G they were going to allow the extention in a hope that the situation is resolved.

Basicaly with CITB you have to also prove by demonstration and knowledge that you can change one of the main components to a system.
Eg The Comp, evap, cond or TEV, because C&G do not require that extra work, CITB are saying that C&G have a market advantage over CITB and it is somthing that needs sorting at the national level.

CITB have interprited the requirements a little differently to C&G, but both have been acredited as providers of the same award.

CITB are fighting their corner:D

Cheers taz.

C&G have another 'market advantage' over CITB.

CITB incorrectly charge VAT on their certificates.

When I took C&G 2078, I could have taken CITB J01 instead. There didn't seem to be any reason to as I only work on Vehicle A/C - nothing to do with the construction industry. C&G charge 35 for the certificate, while CITB wanted 35 + VAT @ 6.12

As a certificate is classed the same as a printed leaflet or flyer, CITB should NOT be charging VAT !

Kinda makes you wonder if CITB really know what they're doing.

Hi Voyager,


CITB incorrectly charge VAT on their certificates.


Are you sure it was CITB that charged the VAT or was it their approved centre that you attended?

Well, the fees were paid to the approved centre, but they said CITB charged VAT on the certificate.
I don't imagine that the centre would add the VAT if they weren't charged it by their supplier - all that would do is increase their prices and add to the paperwork without increasing their profits.
