CITB is reviewing the Health, safety and environment (HS&E) test to ensure that it continues to contribute towards a qualified workforce with the right knowledge, skills and training.

From January 2018 the test will be updated to include new question styles. The content of the questions will not change but a few questions may be presented in a different way. Information regarding the changes, the new question styles and what is happening in the future can be found below.

Please note: the update in January will only include the ‘drag and drop text’ and ‘multiple choice with images’ question styles. Other question styles will be introduced later in the review.

All digital revision materials (DVDs, downloads and apps) have been updated to include the new question styles. These are available to purchase from the CITB shop at HS&E Test Revision Material .  If you already have one of these, there will be an update available to include these changes. For further information about the updates refer to the frequently asked questions page.
