SMSTS/SSSTS Refresher Grace Period Ends
18 January 2021
SSSTS/SMSTS Refresher deadline extension by CITB of January 31st will not be extended further CITB announced.
Expiry Grace Period on SMSTS and SSSTS end Jan 31st
CITB is doing to support construction employers through the coronavirus crisis and beyond. As part of COVID-19 Emergency measures the system currently in place allows SMSTS and SSSTS certificate holders needing to renew their qualification a six month grace period following the expiry date in which to take their respective Refresher courses. The new rules will mean that the SMSTS Refresher or SSSTS Refresher course must be completed before the current certificate expires after January 31st or the delegate will face having too retake the entire 5 day course, not the two day refresher.
If you have an SMSTS/SSSTS certificate that expired after the 15th March 2020 and haven't been able to renew it since, you now have until the 31st January 2021 to sit a SMSTS or SSSTS Refresher course instead of having to sit the full course.
RISK offer a wide range of SMSTS and SSSTS Refresher courses and our virtual classroom makes it easy and accessible. For more information or to book a course, phone us on 01623 749 718 or book online today.
