CITB Temporary Works Co-ordinator


The two-day Temporary works coordinator training course (TWCTC) is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. The course has been designed to give confidence to senior management, and to ensure that those who engage contractors have an assessed standard of knowledge.

The course is supported by a number of organisations, including the Temporary Works forum, CECA, Build UK, HSE and FMB. This enables transferability of the training within the industry.

Temporary works are safety- and business-critical and require careful coordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS 5975:2019, which introduces the temporary works coordinator (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. Therefore, understanding the essentials of good risk and safety management, as outlined in BS 5975:2019, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

This course will give the delegate a thorough knowledge of the temporary works coordinator (TWC) role. However, this does not make a delegate competent by itself. Competence requires other attributes, such as experience.
