In response to various feedback, CITB has confirmed the introduction of a revised grace period to Site Safety certificates.  This will provide support to delegates who are unable to access a Site Safety refresher courses, due to the new lockdown measures.

All delegates now have until 30 April 2021 to join a SSSTS or SMSTS refresher course if their current certificate expires after 1 October 2020.  Any delegate whose certificate expired before the 1 October 2020 and does not attend a refresher course before 31 January 2021, will be required to join a full SSSTS or SMSTS course, rather than the refresher equivalent.  Find the centres delivering remote refresher training here.

If your organisation is struggling to get places on courses please let us know via info@thefis.org and if the numbers are high enough FIS will request a further extension to these dates on behalf of members.
