Boss Training is a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO). CITB Courses are widely accepted as the health and safety training scheme for the construction and civil engineering industry and Boss Training offers four distinct CITB training courses, including SMSTS Courses, SSSTS Courses, the CITB Health & Safety Awareness Training, and SSSTS and SMSTS Refresher Courses.
Who Needs to Attend a CITB Course?
Anyone employed in the construction or civil engineering industry should attend CITB Health and Safety Awareness Training, as it looks at the fundamental occupational health and safety knowledge that’s required from anyone working in these industries. This course lasts a full working day.
SSSTS Courses, or Site Supervisor Safety Training, looks at the fundamental health and safety knowledge required from site supervisors, including the relevant legislation and its compliance; the occupational risks of working at height, with electricity, in demolition and excavations; as well as accident prevention and the role of a supervisor. This course takes place over two working days.
SMSTS Courses, or Site Manager Safety Training, include all the elements of the SSSTS programme as well as site and plant management.
SSSTS and SMSTS qualifications are valid for 5 years, so for those already holding a certificate but approaching the 5-year mark, we offer Refresher SSSTS and SMSTS Courses. Please note that the refresher course is only available prior to the certificate expiring, otherwise, the whole training programme is required in order to requalify.
