SMSTS Refresher Course Assessment

All CITB SMSTS refresher course delegates are required to reach or exceed a minimum level of achievement throughout the course with assessment being determined by:

  • Attendance:  In order to achieve the learning objectives candidates must attend all 5 days, in accordance with the course programme.
  • Exercise/Case Study:  Candidates must successfully complete all individual and group exercises/case studies related to the 4 core modules.  Where necessary the tutor will observe/review each candidates performance in order to establish that the necessary skills have been developed as the course progresses.
  • Examination:  All candidates are required to sit the compulsory examination paper at the end of the course.  The examination informs the overall assessment as to whether individuals have successfully achieved the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) certificate.  The examination paper consists of 25 questions (20 multiple choice questions and 5 short written questions) and it must be completed in the allotted 30 minutes.  There are 5 safety critical questions in each exam paper which the candidate must answer correctly in order to pass the exam.

On successful completion of the SMSTS course and associated assessment candidates will be awarded the CITB: Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) certificate.  This certificate will remain extant for five years after which the SMSTS refresher course must be re-undertaken in order for individuals maintain qualification for a further 5 years.

SMSTS Refresher Course Re-Sit Policy

General course candidates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity if they have failed or been absent from the assessment with good reason.  Candidates are not however automatically re-entered for assessments and they must notify the course administrator of their intention to re-sit by contacting at the earliest opportunity.  Candidates will be notified of available opportunities to undertake a re-sit once there request has been fully considered and where necessary approval has been granted by the awarding body.

There will be a fixed administration fee of £50 for each module to be re-attempted.

Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance the appropriate accrediting body scheme rules:

Cskills (SMSTS, SMSTS Refresher, SSSTS & SSSTS Refresher Courses)

Where a delegate has achieved 70% in the core exercises and the tutor’s review, and gained between 64% – 68% in the multiple-choice examination, the delegate may re-sit the multiple-choice examination by attending another course on the final day. Subsequent arrangements will be at the delegate’s own expense.

The training provider must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination is not used twice. The delegate must re-sit the examination within 90 days of the last day previously attended. A charge may be made to the delegate; however, this fee is left entirely to the discretion of the training provider. Should the delegate fail for a second time, that person will need to attend the full SMSTS course again. Delegates may only be given two chances of successfully achieving the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate, after which an alternative course should be considered to match the delegate’s level of knowledge and understanding of health and safety on site.

When a delegate scores less than 64% (16 correct answers out of 25) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SMSTS course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.
