Will I be issued a certificate upon successful SSSTS-R completion?

Yes. On successful completion, the learner will receive an accredited digital CITB certificate. A proof of pass letter can be immediately provided if required upon receipt of the course results from the trainer.

How long is the SSSTS-R certificate valid?

The certificate is valid for 5 years. 

Are there any entry requirements for SSSTS-R?

The refresher course is only for delegates who have previously passed the two-day Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) or previous one-day refresher course and can provide proof of successful attendance. 

If a delegate cannot provide a copy of their certificate, the CITB online card checker can be used to establish if a delegate currently holds a valid SSSTS certificate.

If an individual cannot be located on the system and no evidence of their certificate can be found, they will have to attend the full Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course. 

Failure to attend the refresher course prior to the expiry of an existing certificate will require the delegate to re-enter the scheme by completing the full two-day Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course if they wish to remain in the scheme. 

Delegates must be competent in English at the site supervisor level. 

Is there a CITB levy completion grant attached to this course?

Yes! There is a £35 grant attached to this course per delegate. As an ATO, we’d automatically claim this on your behalf.
