Covid 19 update:

CITB have announced all delegates have until 30th April 2021 to join a SMSTS refresher course, if their current certificate expired after the 1st Oct 2020.

Any delegate whose certificate expired before the 1st Oct 2020 and after 30th March 2020 will be required to join a full SSSTS course, rather than the refresher equivalent.

Since the 7th Dec 2020 CITB issue all certificates digitally – hard copies are no longer issued.

Delegates receive a PDF certificate via email. CITB have introduced this method to help significantly  reduce the waiting time for delegates receiving their certification. This has been introduced by CITB not ourselves, all sites will now be required to accept a PDF copy of CITB certification.

This course is for

people who need to renew their previous SSSTS qualification.

Course feedback

It was very good to have a trainer from the industry with relevant experience rather than a graduate/theorist.
