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.
