CITB Temporary Works Coordinator

CITB Temporary Works Coordinator Course | Classroom

The CITB Temporary Works Coordinator course was launched by the CITB in response to recent efforts to tighten procedural control on Temporary Works projects, whereby the construction industry issued a mandate that all Temporary Works Coordinators are to hold the certification.

The course gives emphasis throughout to the importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation, and competency (the ‘4Cs’), risk management, safety, and business relations.

It will give confidence to senior management and those who engage with contractors, that they have reached an assessed standard of knowledge.

The course will allow the Temporary Works Coordinator (TWC) to:

  • Understand the need for and duties of a Temporary Works Coordinator
  • Understand the role of others
  • Have detailed knowledge and understanding of BS5975 in respect to this role
