Important Grace Period Changes with CITB Certificates

The CITB has recently announced a change in the Site Safety Plus Scheme Rules regarding the grace period of certificates.  But what do these actual changes entail?

CITB has removed the certificate grace period, currently, six months after a certificate expires. In this time, the individual could renew their certificate by attending a refresher course.  Otherwise, would have had to sit a full course.

CITB

All delegates need to aware of when their certificates expire and assure that they attend a refresher course. They must do this before the end date of their certificate, or else they will be at risk of having to attend the full course again.

The grace period process ended on the 31st of December 2015 now the grace period will not be valid without a formal appeal to the CITB.
