The Site Managers Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is an essential qualification for all construction site managers. It’s part of the CITB Site Safety Plus suite of courses, and is recognised throughout the UK.
The SMSTS course is aimed at construction site managers and builders, and because of this is it focused on the practicalities of running a construction site. Our course is tutored by experienced builders, who have worked in the trade before and know the stress that a construction site manager is under on a daily basis.
