We often receive requests from delegates wanting to book an SMSTS online course, however such a course does not exist.  You can't do an SMSTS course online because all CITB Site Safety Plus courses are classroom based, delivered face-to-face by CITB accredited training providers.

We discuss the benefits of classroom based courses compared to online courses, something that is especially important when dealing with a such an intensive course requiring at least 37.5 - 42 contact hours (depending on method of delivery) that's aimed at construction site managers.

You may be looking for a health and safety training course for yourself or for your staff, and with all the options out there, perhaps you are wondering why book from this site at all when you could order directly from the course provider?

Become a trained First Aider with a First Aid training course

Your boss has asked for volunteers for the next cohort of first aiders in your workplace. Are you thinking about putting your name down?

Deciding whether or not to opt for first aid training may raise doubts in your mind. Questions will surface such as "Why would anyone want to rely on me in an emergency situation?" or "What if I mess up or freeze during a catastrophe?".

Once you have worked out the training requirements of your organisation you will need to arrange for training to be provided. Some training can be provided on your own premises but a lot of training will require you to attend a training centre for assessment in order to issue a certificate.

Not all jobs need the same health and safety training so there are several health & safety qualifications available to cover the requirements of different roles. Two of the biggest health and safety exam providers are IOSH and NEBOSH.

The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) was set up in 1991 and is answerable to the Department of Education (DoE). It is responsible for the development of the engineering construction workforce in Great Britain and that responsibility extends to the training, skills and qualifications needed for an engineer to work on a construction site in the UK.

CPCS logo

If you are hoping to work on any construction site operating heavy machinery such as diggers, dumpers, loaders and rollers, then you will be required to show that you are in possession of a CPCS card. You will not be able to work with this machinery unless you can show you have attended CPCS training and qualified, if you are allowed to work without one then this is a construction site you do not want to work on.

However, if you are wondering "what is PASMA?" and you work with mobile access towers then here is the vital information you need to know.

CITB logo

Don’t leave it till the last minute to book your CITB Site Safety Plus refresher course because you run the risk of having to attend one of the full courses (at full cost of course) meaning more time in a classroom rather than earning a wage on-site.
