CITB Courses Online to ease COVID-19 Pressure’s
1 February 2021
RISK are please to announce that CITB have now increased the number per course from 10 to 12 delegates.
The suite of CITB online courses increases
With the emergency measures driving the adoption of online remote training of key CITB construction courses like the SMSTS, SMSTS Refresher, SSSTS and the SSSTS Refresher, there's no doubt the announcements will ease concerns. As the amnesty on refreshers ends on January 31st 2021, there's likely to be an increase in delegates wanting to take a refresher course rather than resit the whole CITB SMSTS or SSSTS course.
"We’re doing all we can to support the safe delivery of courses and enable employees to continue training and upskilling during these difficult times. Following positive feedback and remaining within the recommended guidelines, we’ve increased the number of delegates permitted per remote delivery course from 10 to 12 with immediate effect.
We’ve also further extended the grace period for employees needing to complete a Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) or Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) refresher course, due to continued high demand and local lockdowns. For certificates that expired after 15 March 2020, employees will now have until 31 January 2021 to join a refresher course, rather than having to re-take the full course."
