SMSTS Course Agenda

CITB SMSTS 2018 Five Day Course Delivery Overview

We’re serious about getting you through the SMSTS Refresher Course which is why we’ve created unique training methods and materials to transfer the knowledge you need in the limited time available.

 

Your obligation is to put 100% effort into the learning

This is a joint venture and your obligation is to put 100% effort into the learning. With the new CITB criteria for the SMSTS Course, this is even more important – as one ‘Safety Critical’ question wrong will result in a failure.

Course work & Homework must be completed

To ensure you stand the best possible chance of passing, you need to complete the homework. Which means after you've completed your day of the SMSTS training course you will also be working in the evening. Our estimate of time you need to dedicate on an evening depends upon you, but we’d suggest a minimum of 90 minutes is required. You have an ‘out-of-hours’ number to support you when working on homework, so we feel we’ve done everything we can to provide you with the knowledge to pass.  You just need to put the work in.
