Update on SMSTS and SSSTS Expiry Grace Period

CITB logoIt has been announced that CITB will extend the grace period for delegates whose SMSTS or SSSTS certificate had expired after the 15th March 2020, supporting candidates who are unable to attend refresher courses due to current high demand.

If you have an SMSTS/SSSTS certificate that expired after the 15th March 2020 and haven't been able to renew it since, you now have until the 30th November 2020 to sit a SMSTS or SSSTS Refresher course instead of having to sit the full course.

We offer a wide range of SMSTS and SSSTS Refresher courses both at our training centres and our virtual classroom. For more information or to book a course, phone us on 0333 301 3000 or click here to contact us.
