ONLINE CITB Temporary Works Co-ordinator Refresher Course

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


This one-day accredited Online CITB Temporary Works Co-Ordinator Refresher course will be delivered remotely, using instructor-led virtual learning. The training course content remains the same as the classroom-based 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).

All Temporary Works Co-ordinator certificates are valid for 5 years from the date of issue. Candidates will be required to show their original certificate prior to attending training. Any delegate that does not attend prior to the end date of their certificate will risk their right to attend a refresher course and will be required to attend the full 2 day course.

Covering temporary works on both small and large sites, this 1-day course focuses on risk management, health and safety regulations and relevant legislation to ensure that co-ordinators understand the role and expectations of managing a temporary works site effectively.

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