The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course is the CITB's 5-day course for project managers, site managers, business owners or anyone who has aspirations to move into a management role. Successful completion of the course will provide you with a 5-year certificate that is widely recognised as a pre-requisite for any managerial jobs on (or as part of) large construction sites.
Once you have successfully completed the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course you will receive the Construction Industry Training Board's SMSTS Certificate, which is valid for five years. Before it expires you can complete a 2-day SMSTS Refresher course to renew your certification.
Fast Line Training Services are also a CITB Approved Training Organisation which enables you to claim funding form the CITB Levy, effectively reducing the cost of your course. Just let us know your Levy number, and we can make the arrangements for you. Don't know if you're a CITB Levy payer, then give us a call and we can help?
If you're after your Black CSCS (Managers) Card, then you need to head over to our "Get your Black Card" page which will tell you exactly what you need to do to get it. Unfortunately, the SMSTS course on its own won't get you a CSCS Black Card.
With all our Site Safety Plus courses, you will receive all the required publications, registration and certification as part of the course fee. We have no hidden costs on our courses. Further, if you don't pass on your first attempt, you can attend for a second time, free of charge.
