SMSTS Remote and virtual courses from home

Are you thinking of getting your CITB SMSTS Certificat? Why should you attend the virtual course from home?

Firstly, the CITB SMSTS training will help site managers, agents and supervisors to manage health and safety on a construction site. Secondly, the SMSTS course content is in accordance with current legal provisions and within the context of their management or supervisory role.

So what is the difference between the virtual SMSTS course and attending a classroom course? The answer is very little as the course content is the same, and you will gain the same qualification. The advantage is that you can take the virtual course from your home or workplace with no travelling. The trainer is with you in realtime in our Zoom classroom so you can ask questions and be supported.
