The group was initially formed in 1968 and was known as the Luton and District Construction Training Group. However, to better reflect the geographical locations of the members, the name was changed in the 1980's to the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Construction Group. In 1991 the group became Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Construction Training Limited. In 2008 to better reflect our position in the market place our name changed to Construction Training (B&H) Ltd.
