At Goldcross Training we aim to ensure that everyone benefits from the best possible training which is why we only use fully accredited and experienced instructors.

SMSTS Refresher Training Course Assessment
Course members are required to reach or exceed a minimum level of achievement on the course. Assessment is determined by:
Full attendance of all sessions of the SMSTS refresher course
Assignments / projects during the course
The CITB SMSTS certificate is issued on successful completion.
General Course delegates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity if you have failed. You are not automatically re-entered, so you must notify the course administrator of your intention to re-sit by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. If it is agreed, you will receive confirmation of the decision once your request has been considered.
Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance the 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.

The CITB was established in 1964 and was one of a number of training boards covering UK industries. It was a non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills until 2016 when it moved to the Department for Education. The activities of the CITB have been redefined by Statutory Instruments.
In 2003 the licence for the new construction industry Sector Skills Council (SSC) was awarded to to “ConstructionSkills”, a partnership between the CITB and the Construction Industry Council (CIC). The CITB became known as CITB-ConstructionSkills, or simply ConstructionSkills, for the most of the next 10 years.
In March 2013, it was announced that the organisation would drop brands such as CITB-ConstructionSkills, CSkills Awards and National Construction College and revert to its original CITB name as a result of industry feedback suggesting that multiple brands were causing confusion. In May 2017, the awarding body Cskills Awards was sold to another industry awarding body NOCN.
