The benefits of an SMSTS course
Benefits to you
One of the key benefits of an SMSTS CITB
course to you, is that is so quick and easy for you to complete. The course lasts five days and can either be done as a full working week consecutive block or as a day release course. The day release course runs one day per week over a total of five weeks and is great if things are too hectic on site to be away for a full working week. The block course will suit you if you are between projects or need to get your qualification ASAP. Another benefit of the SMSTS CITB
course is that it is available in locations all over the UK from Aberdeen to Southampton. This means finding a course near to you will be easy, cutting down on travelling time and costs.
Benefits to your career
The benefits of an SMSTS CITB
course to your career are trifold. Firstly the course is specifically designed for site managers. This means that common risks and problems site managers come across will be addressed in the course. It also means that the content is designed to address all of the elements managers will need to effectively implement health and safety on site. The second career benefit of the SMSTS CITB
course is that there is a refresher course available. This means managers can maintain their qualification for a longer time, using less money and effort than completing the full course again. SMSTS CITB
refreshers last two days and update managers on any legislative changes done since their full course and go over the key points of the course again. Refreshers need to be completed no more than six months after the expiry of your original course certificate. The third career benefit of the SMSTS CITB course is that is endorsed by the CITB and recognised by the UKCG (United Kingdom Contractors Group). This means that managers who have this qualification are acknowledged as having achieved a certain level of health and safety competency.
Benefits to you workers
Stating the obvious the SMSTS course really does help to promote safe working practice on site. Construction can be a dangerous industry compared to other types of work and the quality of people lives can be effected by the wrong decisions. This is why is so important that site leaders be open to protecting their workers as well as getting the job done on time and in budget.
Booking an SMSTS course.
Having made the wise decision to complete the SMSTS course, make another wise decision and let an online service provider locate the course for you. You can save endless hours of online comparison and telephone calls, by contacting a single provider and getting them to do all the leg work for you. They can use their contacts to see which course is the cheapest, closest or runs on the dates that you need. Good providers charge the same price as the individual trainers so you pay no more than if you had found the course yourself!
