SMSTS Training (CITB) - Site Management Training
The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is one of the most highly regarded courses within the construction industry available for site managers and supervisors, taken by more than 10,000 people each year. The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 Approved Code of Practice features reference to the course, stating that its successful completion is the minimum level of competency that is required of those managing construction projects in the UK.
It helps site managers (and anyone wanting to become a site manager) to develop a better understanding of the legal, moral and social responsibilities of their role, and to manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions.
The course lasts five days and is taken one day a week over five weeks. During the course, candidates must pass core exercises. At the end of the training, they must sit an examination in order to qualify for the certificate.
This course is regularly provided throughout the year.
Upon successful completion of the course, candidates will receive a CITB accredited certificate which is valid for five years.
Please note that as of the 1st January 2016, CITB Site Management / Site Supervisor certificates will no longer have a six month grace period and candidates will need to attend a Refresher course before the expiry date of their original certificate.
