3,000 CITB delegates trained online
31 January 2022
Since CITB switched to online delivery of the SMSTS, SSSTS courses to online delivery - RISK have delivered training to over 3,000 people.
SMSTS and SSSTS online courses most popular
The CITB suite of Site Safety Plus courses transitioned to being delivered online as a result of the pandemic during 2020. They proved to be a highly effective way to up-skill and refresh knowledge, and have now become mainstream. RISK were one of the first training companies to deliver the online versions of the SMSTS, SMSTS Refresher, SSSTS and SSSTS Refresher courses online. In fact we worked closely with CITB, sharing our experiences of 'tutor led, online classroom taught courses' as they looked to change the format from physical to virtual.
SMSTS and SSSTS online course uptake was incredible
With the construction sector able to carry on through the Government lockdowns, there was a need for active site managers and supervisors to refresh their qualifications. Online courses were the perfect format, as people remained socially distanced and it soon became clear there was little or no downside. The greatest challenge to RISK was being able to run enough courses to keep up with the demand. Since the pandemic measures have been relaxed by the Government, the online tutor led courses remain just as popular. It seems incredible that over 3000 CITB course delegates have been taught online by RISK between April 2020 and October 2021.
