Q: When does my SSSTS certification expire?
All CITB certification expires 5 years from the end of the month the initial course was completed. For example if you completed a course on 05.01.2022 your certification would expire on 31.01.2027.
It was very good to have a trainer from the industry with relevant experience rather than a graduate/theorist.
