There are no previous qualifications required to take this course, however, the CITB stipulate that;

  • The main aim of the course is to focus on the processes involved in temporary works particularly the role of the TWS.
  • This is not a temporary works technical awareness course, although there are elements of technical awareness signposted throughout and included in the course exercises.
  • Attendance alone does not confer competency which comes from a combination of education, training and experience, as judged by an appropriate senior individual, most usually the designated individual (DI).
  • Training is considered an essential element of TWS competence.

An Overview of the Temporary Works Coordinator Training Course:

Temporary works are often high risk and business-critical therefore require careful co-ordination. The course trains delegates as to the need for a TWC and on the importance of the 4 C’s in addition to:

  • Understanding the duties of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator
  • Understand the roles of others
  • Understand the BS5975 and the code of best practice
  • Temporary Works Overview
  • Statutory aspects of temporary works
  • Risk assessments and method statements
  • Management of the temporary works process

Target Zero deliver the CITB TWC course both remotely and in various classroom venues upon request.

Attendance is required for the full 2-days, with the exam on the last day. This is a 45 minute, open book exam. There are assessment exercises throughout the course. The exam consists of 22 questions, 18 multiple choice questions worth 1 mark and 4 free text questions worth 1-3 marks. The pass mark is 78%.
