Course Background

Designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works, this course explains the role and the overall management context within which the Temporary Works Coordinator (TWC) sits. The course is primarily concerned with the process of coordination of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the Temporary Works Coordinator.

It will also give senior management and those engaging with contractors the confidence to reach an assessed standard of knowledge.

Course Duration

SSG offer this course over two days as a classroom or virtual course.

Course Programme

Successful candidates will gain knowledge and skills in:

  • The importance of the ‘4Cs’: communication, cooperation, coordination and competency in managing temporary works as a TWC
  • Understanding the needs for and duties of a temporary works coordinator
  • Understanding the roles of others involved in temporary works projects
  • The details of BS5975, the code of best practice for temporary structures on building sites

Training is considered an essential element of Temporary Works Coordinator competence.

Successful delegates will receive a CITB renewable certificate which is valid for five years. To remain certified, delegates will need to complete the refresher course prior to the expiry date.
