    SCAFFOLDING MANAGEMENT & SUPERVISORY TRAINING (SMST)

    To enable Contract Managers and Supervisors, Foremen and Non-Working Chargehands to effectively plan, supervise and control scaffolding operations. The content of the course is designed to be comparable to the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS).

    Pre-Requisite
    Delegates will need to have a basic understanding of scaffolding.

    Any physical impairment or literacy issues should be discussed during the booking stage to ensure we can best accommodate your needs.

    Course Duration
    5 consecutive days.

    Maximum Number
    10 persons.

    Training Aids
    Lecture notes and audio/visual presentation.

    Assessment
    Delegates are required to sit a written test and submit a project.

    Certification
    On successful completion of the course candidates will receive a CISRS certificate produced by NETA. The certificate will be sent directly to the delegate or their sponsor company.

    An application must be made for the relevant card (by the individual or their employer/representative) within six months of completing the course. Delegates must also hold a current CITB Supervisors Heath, Safety and Environment Test or recognised exemption before they can apply.

    Equipment
    Delegates must wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) during the practical aspects of the course. Delegates will be required to provide:
    •Hard Hat
    •Safety Boots
    •High visibility vest or overalls (optional)

    Additional Information
    Meeting the needs and expectations of service users is of the highest priority to our staff. Therefore if you have any concerns or wish to make a comment about the service please contact: info@NETA.co.uk

    Refresher
    CISRS Scaffold Management and Supervisory cards last for 5 years and card holders will be required to attend a 2 day refresher of this course on a five yearly cycle prior to renewing their card.

    Please note that that Supervisors Health, Safety and Environment tests are valid for 2 years from the pass date and therefore holding a valid CISRS card does not necessarily mean that your Health & Safety is still valid.

    We do the 5 day CISRS supervisor course, as the SMSTS is not really relevant to scaffolding. A scaffold firm will hardly ever be a PC, so no need to learn the CDM regs.

    How much more can they dream up to pull more dough in? It smacks of desperation.
    To coin an term from economics, 'the law of diminishing returns' is presenting itself to CISRS.

    This course is currently being updated to more closely mirror the smsts. More exercises using the g700 manuals.

    These have always got a sale on.

    As for if it's worthwhile or not, depends on how many doors it opens. Like all these things, it's not great but if it sparks an opportunity that otherwise would be unavailable, then it's obviously worth it.
