CITB Temporary Works Supervisor


The course gives emphasis throughout to the importance of communication, co-ordination, cooperation and competency (the '4Cs'), risk management, safety and business relations. It allows the supervisor to understand the need for, and duties of a temporary works supervisor, understand the role of others and have a detailed knowledge of BS5975. 

This course complements the Temporary works coordinator training course (TWCTC) and is designed to provide training for those undertaking the role of temporary works supervisor (TWS), as defined in BS 5975:2019.

The rationale for the TWSTC is to set and raise standards across the industry, and to enable a transferable knowledge base between employers to avoid unnecessary supplementary training.
