For the Temporary Works Co-ordinator Training Course Refresher (TWCTC-R), only learners who have completed the TWCTC within the last five years are eligible to attend.

The TWCTC refresher is a one-day course. Learners must attend the whole day and pass the end-of-course assessment (7.45 hours) and successfully compete the learner personal review to be eligible for certification.

The one-day refresher course is designed to help those who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works on site. The course seeks to improve the knowledge of this role and the temporary works environment.

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.

Course Information

Course Overview

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 Temporary Works Co-ordinator TWC to:

  • understand the need for and duties of a TWC
  • understand the role of others
  • have a detailed knowledge and understanding of BS 5975: 2019 in respect of this role

This course is constructed around BS 5975:2019 and delegates are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of BS 5975:2019 and a basic understanding of related H&S legislation and associated documentation.

Delegates unable to attend all of a course’s learning delivery schedule due to extenuating circumstances (for example, certificated sickness) will need to enrol on a new course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes.

To further support delegates, both CITB and the TWf have created a Temporary Works Awareness e-Learning which provides a foundation of the points that will be expanded on in this course. It explores how health and safety legislation plays a pivotal role in temporary works, and how documents which are common to more generic construction activities are a useful aid for planning and the ongoing management and monitoring of temporary works. 

Both e-learning courses are free of charge:

Note: This does not confirm competency as a TWC once delegates have successfully completed the course but is for the purposes of continuing professional development (CPD), and learners must be considered along with experience, skill, knowledge and behaviour.
