Who Should Attend?

This course is ideal for those on site who manages all types of temporary works.  The course is designed for senior managers who control the planning, procurement and management of temporary works.  This course would also benefit those who control contractors.

Course Content:

Delegates will gain knowledge and understanding the role of a temporary works coordinator, managing the temporary works process and the role of others.

Temporary works are safety and business critical and require careful co-ordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS 5975:2019, which introduces the temporary works co-ordinator (TWC) as a key figure. This course explains the role and its overall management context.

Temporary works on both smaller and larger sites can be high risk activities. Therefore, understanding the essentials of good risk and safety management, as outlined in BS 5975:2019, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

The course gives emphasis throughout to the importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation, and competency (the ‘4Cs’), risk management, safety and business relations, allowing the TWC to:

  • Understand the need for and duties of a temporary works coordinator
  • Understand the role of others
  • Have a detailed knowledge & understanding of BS 5975 in respect of this role
Important notes from CITB
  • The main aim of these courses is to focus on the process of co-ordination of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the TWC
  • These courses are not temporary works technical awareness courses, although there are elements of technical awareness that are signposted throughout and that must be included in the course exercises
  • Attendance does not confer competency as a TWC; this comes from a mixture of education, training and experience and should be judged by an appropriate senior individual, usually referred to as the designated individual (DI)
  • Training is considered an essential element of TWC competence

Successful delegates will be able to demonstrate thorough knowledge and improved ability to manage the temporary works process.

Certification for this course is valid for 5 years. To remain certified in this area, delegates will need to retake the refresher course before the expiry date.


Delegate Preparation:

Delegates must have completed TWCTC or the TWCTC refresher in the last five years.
