Who is the course suitable for?
The CITB SSSTS refresher course is suitable for site managers, agents, and other construction industry professionals who have gained SSSTS accreditation in the past five years. Each SSSTS certificate lapses after five years, so the fresher course must be completed before that date. If the certificate is allowed to expire, you can only regain it by retaking the full SSSTS course.
