The two-day Temporary Works Co-ordinator Training Course (TWCTC) and one-day refresher course (TWCTC-R) are 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.

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 TWC

• understand the role of others

• have a detailed knowledge and understanding of BS 5975 in respect of this role

The aim of the course:

• 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 exercise.

• 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.
