Online CITB Courses - Remote Learning SSSTS Refresher 1 Day Course

CITB ONLINE SSSTS Refresher 1 Day Course (Remote Learning)


This CITB SSSTS Refresher 1 day virtual course will be delivered remotely, using instructor-led remote learning. The course content remains the same as classroom-based training, however, you’ll attend a scheduled, interactive class via Zoom video conferencing. For this, you will need access to a laptop or desktop computer with a webcam, microphone and speaker (sorry, no tablets).

The course is intended for those who currently hold the Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme certificate and now need to update their skills and knowledge in line with current legislation and maintain their SSSTS qualification.  This highly interactive course is delivered by means of case studies, classroom discussion, group work and individual / group presentations.

The CITB SSSTS course is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites.

Delegates under the age of 18 must provide written consent from a parent or guardian to successfully attend.


Any Delegate that does not attend prior to the end date of their certificate will risk their right to attend a refresher course and will be required to attend the full 2 day course.

*  PLEASE NOTE - It will take approximately 2-3 weeks for the CITB to issue an E-Cert  *


On successful completion of the remote SSSTS Refresher training course delegates will be able to:

  • Understand problems currently highlighted in the industry within their role.
  • Have an understanding of how health and safety law is currently structured

At the end of the virtual SSSTS Refresher course delegates are required to sit an exam paper consisting of 25 questions, of which 4 are safety critical and require a short written answer.  Multiple choice questions are worth 1 point each and safety critical questions are worth 1-3 points each.   In order to pass the course delegates MUST answer ALL of safety critical questions correctly.  The SSSTS Refresher Course pass rate is 80% (24 out of 30).

The exam will take place at the end of the course via a Zoom video call with your tutor.  No secondary devices (i.e. mobile phones) are allowed during the exam.
