CITB have announced that they have introduced a revised grace period, to support delegates who are unable to access an SMSTS or SMSTS refresher course due to the new lockdown measures implemented across the UK as well as a change to certificate delivery.
SMSTS and SSSTS expiry grace period
If you have an SMSTS/SSSTS certificate that expired after the 1st October 2020 and haven't been able to renew it since, you have until the 30th April 2021 to sit a SMSTS or SSSTS Refresher course instead of having to sit the full course.
Please note that if you still have an SMSTS/SSSTS certificate that expired after the 15th March and before the 1st October 2020 that you haven't been able to renew since, you have until the 31st January 2021 to sit a SMSTS or SSSTS Refresher course instead of having to sit the full course.
Site Safety Plus certificates
CITB have also confirmed that all future Site Safety Plus certificates will now be sent as digital PDFs.
This new process will ensure that delegates will now have access to evidence of their achievement much quicker following the submission of results as well as help reduce additional fees for lost certificates.
We offer a wide range of Site Safety Plus courses (including SMSTS and SSSTS Refresher courses) at our virtual classroom. For more information or to book a course, phone us on 0333 301 3000 or click here to contact us.
