CITB Assessment Process
This instructor-led SMSTS online course is delivered remotely via Zoom. You will need to complete the full 5 days, case studies and exercises to the satisfaction of the course instructor, and you will need to sit an exam at the end to prove you are competent.
The only way to guarantee that you as a site manager are equipped for your role is to ensure you attend every single training session that takes place. 100% attendance will be required from you to successfully complete the certificate.
CITB site manager qualifications are officially valid for 5 years after the date of completion of the training course. We recommend that you book onto the SMSTS Refresher course no longer than 3 years after their initial training, however the course can be taken up to 5 years after. Legislation within the construction industry, along with the culture that underpins it, is changing from quarter to quarter, so attending regular refresher programmes is the only way to ensure that you are keeping up to date with the latest rules and regulations.
