The SMSTSR course aims to improve awareness of recent developments in:
At the end of the course, Delegates will be aware of and able to implement all updated health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation which affects them in their role as a manager, be aware of and able to implement new guidance and industry best practice and be more aware of their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.
Only those delegates who have passed the five-day SMSTS course and provided evidence to us before attending the course are eligible to attend the two-day refresher course.
Course work is assessed by the instructor throughout the course, via work produced by syndicate exercises and individual participation. There is also a 30 minute, 25 question, objective multiple-choice examination at the end of the course. Successful candidates will be awarded the CITB Site Managers Safety Training Refresher Certificate.
The SMSTSR training course lasts two days, 8.30 am – 5 pm daily. This can be delivered as a two day Block or one day a week over a two week period. The SMSTSR certificate lasts for five years, candidates must sit a further two day SMSTSR training course to renew their certificate prior to the expiry date to keep their qualification up-to-date.
Typical fees for open courses are £295 plus VAT per person; however this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers).
As part of the fees each candidate will receive the GE700 – Construction Site Safety – The Comprehensive Guide, currently retailing at £95.40, plus the certification charges at £37.50. Companies that are eligible for CITB grant refund can claim a grant of £60 for each successful candidate who completes the course.
We run regular open SMSTSR courses in our training centre in Rainham Kent, or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available. We cover the whole of the UK so would be happy to travel to anywhere you need your course.
It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking an SMSTSR course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by CITB to provide the SMSTSR course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.
