Specialist Applied Skills Programme (SAP) in Lead or Hard Metal (Level 2 and Level 3)

The LSTA has been appointed by CITB as the UK’s sole provider of these courses. The courses are a mixture of attendance at the training centre and on-site experience and assessment. Each of these courses will take up to 18 months to complete including 30-days attendance at the LSTA centre split into one week blocks.

SAP courses normally have three intakes a year and candidates will be required to attend for the initial week. Subsequent training days can be arranged to suit your needs.

Most of the cost of these programmes are met directly by CITB. Much of the balance can be reclaimed by employers as grant once candidates have successfully completed the course.
