To further support delegates, CITB has created a Temporary works awareness eLearning which provides a foundation of the points that will be expanded on in this course.

Feedback on the TWC course that I attended on 7/8. The tutor Francis Kwateng was brillant. The course was well structured and well delivered for such an intense subject, and I passed.
I just wanted to say that I thought the way John ran the course was very informative and engaging. I can recall my initial TWC training and have so say it was nowhere near as impressive as your course.
John was a brilliant trainer, very informative and used his own experiences to help pass on knowledge.
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 between the two days to make sure you are prepared for your exam.
