Important Renewal/Refresher Rules
It is the responsibility of the booker to ensure that the existing certificate falls within each course’s rules regarding refresher training.
CITB – Refresher must be undertaken before the current certificate’s expiry date. The previous six-month grace period is no longer available from CITB.
Other – Check the individual expiry dates for the course. If you are attending a refresher course, you will need to provide a copy of your existing certificate prior to the course start date.

Transferring a Booking to an Alternative Date

End of Course Assessments
Delegates must successfully complete the end of course test and any required assessments in- order to qualify for their certificate.
If, for any reason this is not possible, the delegate must retake the course.
Requirements for delegates
Good time keeping throughout the course is essential.
If any delegate arrives late for a course, we reserve the right to refuse entry if we feel the delegate will gain insufficient knowledge in the time remaining.
In all such cases, the full course fee remains payable.
M S Associates (Safety) Ltd offer delegates a safe and effective learning environment and reserve the right to ask any delegates to leave should we believe they are being disruptive or disrespectful to other delegates or our staff.
Any damage to facilities or equipment will result in the delegate being removed from the course and costs maybe sought. The full course fee will not be refunded.
Most courses, particularly those accredited by CITB, are delivered in English only.
No translators are allowed into CITB courses at any time.
If a delegate attends a training course and is unable to complete the training or successfully pass the end of course assessment, this is at the delegate’s discretion and no refund will be forthcoming should the delegate subsequently fail the course.
Courses are held at several suitable venues specifically chosen by M S Associates (Safety) Ltd.
These venues have their own terms and conditions, which M S Associates (Safety) Ltd will ensure delegates are made aware of any requirements which may affect them during the course.
Most of the venues used by M S Associates (Safety) Ltd offer free parking. However, this cannot be guaranteed and may be on a first come first served basis.
