How long is the Temporary Works Supervisor course?

This is a one-day course that equates to approximately 7.5 hours of learning.

The short duration is enough to cover the content need and deliver a digestible amount of information. You will also only have to spend one day away from work to finish the training.

Temporary Works Supervisor entry requirements

To attend, you must have a strong perception of written and spoken English.

This requirement is in CITB’s scheme rules, and failure to fit these criteria will have you removed from the course.

You must also have experience in being responsible for managing all forms of temporary works and understanding the relevant aspects of the BS 5975 revision material.

You must provide a photographic ID and your national insurance number on the first day of the course.

To attend the online TWS course.

You must have access to a computer or laptop that uses a microphone and webcam. The above equipment is imperative to you getting the most out of your training and completing the exam properly.

Why should I take this course?

Agents, Managers, and Supervisors who have experience of being responsible for temporary works should attend this course. Completing the course will not appoint you a competent Temporary Works Supervisor but will give you the health & safety knowledge to help you get there.

Temporary works are a business-critical part of the construction process; therefore, careful supervision is important. The course will help you understand how to take a Temporary Works Supervisor role and its relevance.

This course supports a range of organisations, including Temporary Works ForumCECAUKCGHSE and FMB. This highlights the recognition the qualification has throughout the industry, its companies and employers.

Is this course accredited?

This is a Site Safety Plus CITB accredited course. Site Safety Plus is a suite of health and safety courses that help to develop the skills of construction and its allied industries. SSP courses are some of the leading health and safety construction qualifications in the country.

Where can I complete this course?

Online Learning

This course is hosted in 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 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. We can deliver In-house courses 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

You will receive your certificate 6-8 week after completion of the course. Your certificate will expire after five years and can be renewed by attending the course again.

If you are looking to advance as a manager or supervisor, you can pick up further role-related health and safety knowledge from the SMSTS and SSSTS. Each will expand your knowledge further of construction site health & safety and the responsibilities of each role.

If you’re looking to obtain the Gold Supervisory CSC Card, you can do so by completing NVQ Level 4 in Construction Site Supervision. This is a competence-based qualification that shows that you are knowledgeable and experienced as a construction supervisor.

Yes, companies who are CITB registered can claim £30 for each delegate who successfully pass this course.
