Course Aims

This industry leading course will provide delegates with Site Supervisory responsibilities with the knowledge required to give valuable assistance in safely managing a construction site.

This remote learning and examination option for the site supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course has been created to allow delegates to gain and develop the required knowledge outside of the classroom.

Please Note: The minimum age of attendance for this course is 16 years old, however delegates who are under the age of 18 must bring a completed parental consent form to the first day of the training course.

This attracts a CITB Short Course Duration Grant at Tier 2, with a value of £140.  Please see the Grants and Funding tab for further information.

Microsoft Teams MUST be installed beforehand to ensure you can participate successfully.

  • User Guide and further information here.

Now Available

The Operatives test ensures workers have a minimum level of health, safety and environmental awareness before going on site. To apply for a CSCS Labourers Green card, delegates will need to successfully complete both the Operatives HS&E test and the Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness course, holding both valid certificates. CSCS cards provide evidence that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they do on site, and contractors or clients in the UK require workers to hold a card before they are granted access to a site.
