Online CITB Temporary Works Co-ordinator Course

CITB ONLINE Temporary Works Co-ordinator Course (Remote Learning)


This two day accredited CITB Temporary Works Co-ordinator virtual course will be delivered remotely, using instructor-led virtual learning. The course content remains the same as the classroom-based TWCTC training, however, you’ll attend a scheduled, interactive class via Zoom video conferencing. For this, you will need access to a laptop or desktop computer with a webcam, microphone and speaker (sorry, no tablets).

The TWCTC course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. It is also designed to give confidence to senior management and those who engage contractors that they have a recognised standard of knowledge and understanding.

Situations involving complex temporary works may occur on small as well as larger sites hence understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes. This course will give the delegate thorough knowledge of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator role.  Please note that attendance of this course does not confirm competency as a Temporary Works Co-ordinator.  Competence will come from a mixture of education, training and experience.  However, training is considered an essential element of TWC competence.

Site Safety Plus ask that delegates refer to the current British Standards BS5975 for Temporary Works (Code of Practice) prior to their training.

*  PLEASE NOTE - It will take approximately 2-3 weeks for the CITB to issue an E-Cert  *


At the end of the remote Temporary Works Co-ordinator training successful delegates will be able to:   

  • Understand the need for, and the duties of, a Temporary Works Co-ordinator
  • Understand the roles of others on the site
  • Understand the BS5975 and the code of best practice for temporary structures on building sites


The CITB ONLINE Temporary Works Co-ordinator course will cover the following topics: -

  • Temporary Works Overview
  • Background Information
  • Statutory aspects of temporary works
  • Risk assessments and method statements
  • Management of the temporary works process


* Delegates must attend all sessions, in accordance with the course programme, to achieve the necessary learning objectives *

Candidates will be assessed throughout the virtual course with practical exercises. In addition to this, delegates are required to complete a test paper at the end of the course consisting of 22 questions, 4 of which are free text format. The exam pass mark is 78% (21 out of 27).  Certification is valid for 5 years.
