CSTS is delivered in conjunction with the ACSA. The CSTS Course is divided into separate modules that can be completed at your own pace, and the full CSTS program takes on average five to six hours to complete.
CSTS gives a basic overview of various health and safety topics. Having a CSTS ticket has become a pre-entry requirement for many construction industry work sites.
