CITB announcement about grace period for the Site Safety Plus Scheme

Following our communication on Wednesday 2 September 2015 to remove the grace period for the Site Safety Plus scheme, we would like to provide further clarification.

We announced that Cskills Awards will continue the current process until 31 December 2015 after which date no registrations will be made that are beyond the end date of the certificate without formal appeal (this should be in the form of an email to, detailing the learner name, registration number, date of certificate expiry and grounds for appeal).

What does this mean? The 6 month grace period WILL still apply to any delegate with a certificate expiry date up to and including 31 December 2015. All certificates with an expiry date 1 January 2016 onwards must attend the refresher course prior to the end date on the certificate. Any delegate that does not attend prior to the end date of their certificate will risk their right to attend a refresher course and will be required to attend the full course.

If you have any questions please contact your dedicated customer co-ordinator on 0344 994 4020.

Kind regards Cskills Awards Team, CITB
