Why are CITB Refresher Courses Important?

Everything You Need to Know

If you want to retain your CITB qualification, then you need to take a refresher course before your current card expires. Here’s why renewing your certificate is so important – and why so many of our customers are opting to complete their SSSTS refresher courses online.

Keep your qualification

If you want to retain the valuable qualification you worked hard for, then you will need to take a refresher course. Upon completing the SSSTS course successfully, you will be given a certificate that is valid for 5 years. If you want to retain the certificate for another 5, then you will need to take a refresher course before the expiry date on your certificate. If you leave it too late, you will have to take the full course again – which will cost you more in terms of time and money. So a refresher course is by far the best option.

Refresh your knowledge

Besides helping you to retain your SSSTS card, taking a refresher course gives you the valuable opportunity to refresh your knowledge. Everyone forgets things with time – it’s just part of being human! When you take a CITB refresher course, you will be re-introduced to the key concepts you covered during your SSSTS training. This will help to ensure that, back on site, you are still carrying out your role in accordance with all current guidelines.

Keep up with changing regulations

Health and safety in the workplace is something that has evolved massively over the past 20 years or so, and even now regulations are always changing to meet the needs of today’s workforce. By taking a refresher course, you will be able to see what has changed in the industry since your last training 5 years ago and see how those new guidelines will support and inform you back on-site. That’s why it’s so important to refresh your training.
