To support the safe delivery of courses and enable employees to continue training and upskilling during these difficult times CITB have increased the number of delegates permitted per remote delivery course from 10 to 12 with immediate effect.

CITB has also extended the grace period for employees needing to complete a Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) or Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) refresher course, due to continued high demand and local lockdowns.  For certificates that expired after 15 March 2020, employees will now have until 31 January 2021 to join a refresher course, rather than having to re-take the full course.
