SSSTS Refresher

Key Course Facts

Course duration: 1 day

Please note, the SSSTS Refresher must be undertaken BEFORE the current certificate’s expiry date.

All delegates now have until 30 April 2021 to join a SSSTS/SMSTS refresher course, if their current certificate expired after the 01 October 2020.


Who should attend the course?

1 day refresher course for the SSSTS. Delegates MUST have a valid certificate for their previous SSSTS course.

What does the course cover?

The SSSTS refresher course will remind delegates of the basics, along with updates on best practice and any changes to legislation in the 5 years since they gained their original SSSTS certification.

Delegates will be provided with the GE706 – Site Safety Simplified and GT700 – Toolbox Talks publications from the CITB.


Assessing learning outcomes

Following completion of the course, there will be a multiple-choice test to evaluate delegates’ learning.


SSSTS training needs to be updated every 5 years, making the refresher course essential for those who wish to keep up to date and renew their certificate.

In 2015, the CITB changed its scheme rules, effecting all CITB courses requiring a Refresher course.

A refresher must be undertaken before the current certificate’s expiry date.

These courses include: SMSTS & SSSTS.

It is the delegate/booker’s responsibility to ensure that the existing certificate is within the new scheme rules before booking or sitting a Refresher course..

If a booking is made with HCS Safety and it is found that the certificate’s expiry date does not fall within the scheme rules, HCS Safety does not accept responsibility and will not pay any type of compensation..

This includes any booking made on the sole advice given by HCS Safety regarding CITB’s scheme, as this advice may be misinterpreted by the delegate/booker and the information provided to HCS Safety at the time of booking may be incorrect.
