This course is available in our training centres throughout the UK. The tutor delivers the course in a traditional classroom format to up to 20 delegates at a time.
The SMSTS day release format is favourable to companies who prefer not to have a Site Manager off-site for a whole five days in a row. It also allows delegates more time to revise and do their work at home and manage work commitments simultaneously.
We have multiple public dates available to book throughout the year. Classroom courses can be booked over the phone or online by delegates themselves or companies booking on behalf of their employees.
The Remote Learning SMSTS Day Release offers even more flexibility than the classroom course. Delegates don’t even need to be off-site to attend the course; they can log in from the site via a computer or laptop.
The course is hosted on an online virtual classroom using Zoom. To access the course, delegates must join the course using the link provided. However, they will need a computer or laptop with a screen, camera, microphone and access to the internet to attend this course online.
The tutor will deliver all the same content as the classroom-based course, and delegates can still interact with fellow delegates and the tutor over webchat and video. Delegates are provided with a downloadable digital copy of the coursebook, and the final exam is completed online.
We have multiple dates for the Remote Learning course available to book online or over the phone.
If one of our public course dates doesn’t fit in with a clients schedule, we can arrange an in-house course specifically for their delegates.
This course can be delivered in the classroom or remotely whenever they please within the 5 weeks. To deliver an in-house directors course, there must be a minimum of 4 delegates and no more than 12.
We price each in-house course on a case by case basis; the price may vary depending on location, delivery style and delegate numbers.
