Why do an SMSTS refresher?
The course will refresh your knowledge on the areas of learning on the full course, as well as updating you on any developments within the industry and in legislation that managers need to be effective in their role.
One of the most important features of the SMSTS refresher, is that it allows you to keep your full qualification up to date, without having to redo the full five days training course. The SMSTS refresher
is only two days long, meaning it is perfect for site managers that are short on time or that cannot get away from site for an entire working week. Does this sound like you? Then an SMSTS refresher
could be the solution.
As the SMSTS refresher
is only two days long, rather than the five days of the full course, it is of course cheaper. You can expect to pay roughly half the price of a full SMSTS course for an SMSTS refresher. But do shop around as depending on your location and timescale you can grab yourself a bargain and find a cheaper course.
One of the best aspects of the SMSTS refresher
course, is that it is available throughout the UK. This means you can make life easy for yourself by choosing the location and date that is closest to you. By doing this you can save yourself, further time and money, by reducing the commute to the training center from your home or work and fitting it in around your schedule.
Keep your card in date
The SMSTS refresher
allows you to keep your card in date. You must already hold an SMSTS card and be either nearing the end of your five year validity period or no more than six months over the end date on your card. This sixth months is known as the grace period, instituted by the CITB to make it easier for previously qualified site managers to get a renewal, rather than do the whole course again. So even though you think your card has run out, you may still be eligible to attended a refresher! A word of warning here though, if you are new to the SMSTS scheme, you must first do the full five day course, before you are eligible for the two day refresher!
The last key advantage of the SMSTS refresher course is that you can now locate and book your place online. This means no locating the providers in your area, no calling them up to get dates and prices, no comparing of prices and no filling in of time consuming booking forms.
This can all be done, with a single call or email to an online service provider. They will take your contact information and make a note of your requirements and then use their database and industry contacts to find you the cheapest, closest and soonest matching course. The best thing is that the best online service providers will charge you the same price as the training provider themselves, so you cut out all the work and still get a great price!
