Covid 19 update:

During the COVID-19 crisis CITB provided a grace period for delegates whose SMSTS/SSSTS achievement had expired after 15 March 2020. The grace period allowed delegates who were unable to access a refresher course before their certificate expired until the 30th September 2020 to join onto a SSSTS refresher, instead of having to sit the full course.

CITB have continued to review this situation and have decided to extend this grace period to support those delegates who are unable to access the relevant refresher course due to the current high demand.

All delegates now have until 31st January 2021 to join a SSSTS refresher course, if their current certificate expired after the 15 March 2020.

Feedback on CITB SSSTS Refresher

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