What’s a Virtual CITB SSSTS Course?
The CITB has endorsed accredited training providers like Project Skills Solutions delivering courses virtually via live video platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams. That means you can now attend an online Virtual SSSTS from home. The course is live and trainer-led, just like attending a training course in a classroom.
A virtual SSSTS course mirrors a classroom course, but instead of being in the same classroom as your trainer and other delegates, you are in an online meeting. So, you have a live trainer with who you can ask questions. You have live classmates who you work with during activities, you complete the same assessment as you would in a classroom and achieve the same certificate.
We have worked to adapt our virtual courses to be at the same high standard as our classroom courses. Although you follow the same syllabus, you’ll complete different activities throughout the day that have been adapted for an online delivery. Some of these activities include group discussions, online quizzes and games, and online hazard spotting exercises.
What do I need to attend a virtual course?
All you need is a computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone. If you have a computer or laptop but no camera and microphone, you can use the camera and microphone on your smartphone, and our team can help you set that up in minutes. Please note that you cannot take this course using only your mobile phone.
You’ll be sent a link and meeting details to your Zoom meeting room before your course. Click the link 15 minutes before your session is due to start, and you’ll be in the meeting room. Easy as that!
