RISK has worked directly with CITB to adapt the SMSTS Refresher course so it can be taught online remotely, via video conferencing. It's delivered in an engaging format unique to RISK, to ensure the delegates acquire the relevant knowledge and training experience.
How does the SMSTS Refresher course work with remote learning?
Due to the current COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, class based training courses are not running. However, the SMSTS Refresher qualification is needed by anyone who has responsibilities for anyone currently holding a valid Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) certificate. To maintain their SMSTS certification, holders must refresh their skills and knowledge every five years through SMSTS Refresher courses.
The course has been adapted to provide the same level of coverage of health and safety, welfare and environmental issues as the classroom version. It also covers all the information in relation to legal duties relevant to specific work activities. However, all this is delivered via video conferencing, which RISK will run and delegates booked on will be sent an invite to join.
What video conferencing software will be used for the SMSTS Refresher Remote Online Course?
It's clear not all companies or people use one video conferencing platform. Whilst zoom appears to be the most popular, some businesses use Webex or Microsoft Teams, which is why RISK is setting up a mixture of courses using the different platforms. However, the standard used for the courses listed on this page is zoom, because this is free to users. If you need an alternative platform please call 01623 749 718 before booking.
