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

From the 7th December 2020 CITB will be issuing all certificates digitally which means hard copies will no longer be issued and sent out. Delegates will 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 except a PDF copy of CITB certification.

This course is for

people who need to renew their previous Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme qualification.

Course feedback

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