Temporary Work Coordinator Course

Temporary Works Coordinator course content

The content covered by the CITB course includes:

Understanding the role of a Temporary Works Co-ordinator and why they are needed and the roles of others on site. As well as how to manage the temporary works process.

The code of best practice for temporary structures on building sites; BS5975 and how it used with the role, and legislation and relevant codes of practice.

The importance of the “4Cs” communication, coordination, cooperation and competency.

The need for risk management; risk assessments, and method statements.

Some self-study may be required outside of the course.

Assessment: To complete the course, you will need to get 72% or above in the final exam. The trainer will encourage you to be interactive and involved throughout the training.

How long is a Temporary Works Coordinator course?

This is a two-day training course. The two dates fit in a lot of content but are highly interactive and engaging. You also have the facility to self-study in between the two days to make sure you are prepared for your exam.

Why should I take this course?

Anyone who has the responsibility of managing all forms of temporary works should attend this course. This course does not bestow you as a competent Temporary Works Co-ordinator but gives you the tools to progress in the role and manage health & safety better.

Temporary works are an important part of the construction process and require accurate coordination. The qualification will help to increase your understanding of the process and how it can affect various sites.

The course is renowned and transferable throughout the industry; it also has the support of a range of organisations including Temporary Works Forum, CECA, UKCG, HSE and FMB. This shows how much weight it has and how it will be recognised across various customers, clients and potential employers.

Temporary Works Coordinator entry requirements

Delegates must have an understanding of spoken and written English. This is a requirement by CITB and vital when working on a UK site, especially if you need to conduct the 4C’s properly whilst working. Failure to meet these requirements will have you removed from the course.

We also suggest that the attendee has a decent background knowledge of temporary works.

Photographic ID and the delegates national insurance number must be provided on the first day of the course. To issue a qualification, we need to ensure that the correct person is attending the course.

To attend the Online Learning course, you must have access to a computer or laptop that uses a microphone and webcam. To be able to interact with the tutor and those attending you must be easily seen and heard throughout. The rules also require for you to be seen by the invigilator whilst completing the exam.

Is this course accredited?

Yes, this course is CITB accredited and part of their suite of Site Safety Plus courses. SSP courses are widely recognised by clients, employers and allied industries as a leading health and safety qualification in construction.

Where can I complete this course?

This course can be delivered via both classroom-based or Online / Remote Learning.

Public Classroom Courses

Temporary Works Coordinator training is available to attend in the classroom in our training venues nationwide. The tutor delivers the course in a physical classroom format to a group of up to 12 people.

We have various public dates available to book throughout the year. Classroom courses can be booked over the phone or online by delegates themselves or companies booking on behalf of their employees. Our full list of Temporary Works Coordinator courses is available to view live on our website here.

Remote Learning

Sometimes attending external training can be time-consuming and costly. It isn’t always easy to take out a whole two days to travel to an external training course. In 2020 we introduced the Remote Temporary Works course, this course cuts out any need for travel expense because it is all delivered online. The course is hosted on an online virtual classroom using Zoom. Delegates log into the course using the link provided on the course start time. All that is required is a computer or laptop with a microphone, a camera, a screen and a connection to the internet. CITB introduced this delivery format to their courses in 2020, and it has proven very popular. The content covered is the same as the classroom course, and delegates can still interact as they would in the classroom. Delegates are provided with a downloadable digital copy of the coursebook, and the final exam is completed online.

We have multiple dates for the Remote Learning course available to book online or over the phone.

In-house Courses

We can also organise the Site Safety Plus Temporary Works Coordinator course to be delivered on an in-house basis. In-house courses can be delivered in either the classroom, remote learning or in a venue of your choosing. CITB scheme rules require a minimum of 4 delegates and no more than 12 delegates. Bear this in mind when enquiring about in-house training. We price our in-house courses on a case by case basis, taking into account the location of training, number of delegates and delivery method. If you would like us to quote, complete the in house training enquiry form on this page and one of the team will be in touch.

Further development

On successful completion of the training, you will receive a certificate in 6-8 weeks. The CITB certificate is valid for 5 years and can only be renewed by attending the course again.

Temporary works coordination requires knowledge of construction safety and supervisory skills. These skills can be developed by attending the SSSTS course. This course covers a broad range of construction health and safety subjects.

You may also want to gain the relevant skills card to advance further in your career. By holding a skills card you are showing competence in your field.  You can obtain the Advanced CSC Craft Card by completing the NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Occupational Work Supervision. Alternatively, the Gold Supervisory Card can be obtained by completing the NVQ Level 4 in Construction Site Supervision.

Is this course CITB Grant claimable?

Yes, the course is grant claimable. CITB registered companies can claim £70 grant for each delegate that attends the TWCTC. To claim the grant, the company name and CITB Levy number must be included on the delegate information form either at the time of booking or on the day of the course.
