CITB SMSTS: The Benefits From Attending
If you have been booked in for a CITB SMSTS course by your employer and you are not quite sure what you will gain from the course? Here are the top 5 benefits from attending the SMSTS course.
The CITB is a highly reputable training board; and therefore is known for providing quality health and safety courses for the construction industry. The CITB provide courses such as the CITB SMSTS, SSSTS and Health and Safety Awareness
An SMSTS course is a quick and easy process. It doesn’t involve weeks of studying or you have to be off-site for too long. The course lasts only five days and can be attended in either a five-day block or on a day release basis (one day a week). The day release allows those who work on a busy site to not be away from work for long periods of time. The day release option is useful for those who prefer a longer amount of time for revision. They can stretch the revision out over the space of a month rather than a week. The block course is perfect for those who are between projects and need to gain the qualification quickly.
The course is available all over the UK and easily accessible; 3B Training provides the Site Manager’s course in a variety of locations across the UK. Venues including; Wigan, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Leeds and Durham. The course can also be delivered on-site by one of our many trainers.
The course is specifically tailored for the delegates who are attending. The course provides specialised health and safety information for Site Managers which they can implement on site. Some courses such as the CITB Health and Safety Awareness the tutor have to cater to delegates from a range of job roles but in the SMSTS doesn’t have to. All issues that site a manager will encounter will be covered on the course.
CITB SMSTS Refresher Courses
Unlike a lot of courses, the SMSTS has a two-day refresher course. This course allows managers to keep their knowledge of legislative changes and certificate up-to-date rather than having to pay or attend the full course again.
Site Safety Plus qualifications are highly recognised; the certificate proves that you are aware of the dangers of bad health and safety and that you are competent to be on site. Being able to confidently promote working safely on site will put you ahead of other managers that don’t have this qualification.
The SMSTS course is very important; the knowledge from the course could help you save a life in the future. Your new knowledge can help you prevent an accident before it happens.
