Temporary Works Supervisor Course

CITB Courses

Temporary Works are an important and integral part of most construction projects and as such, the correct implementation of methods, designs, and procedures as set out in BS5975:2019 is an important part of any successful project. At Lighthouse, we believe that the competence of individuals in delivering outstanding and safe projects is fundamental and training a key element.

£230plus VAT (£276 Total cost)

(These costs include exams and all associated costs)

Temporary Works Supervisors (TWSs) can be appointed by subcontractors to manage their temporary works or by main contractors to support the TWC on a large project. The purpose of this course is to outline the role of the Temporary Works Supervisor (TWS) as described by BS5975:2019. It is aimed at those who have site experience of temporary works.

The course covers relevant legislation and best practice as outlined by BS5975:2019, analyses the causes of failures and explores the way in which the role of the TWS supports that of the TWC.

Lighthouse can assist clients in achieving project success. We deliver training for construction professionals and help raise their competence levels. We can provide opportunities for staff to develop their skills with resulting benefits to project delivery and business improvement.

Those being awarded a pass following the course will gain certification for a nationally recognised course. Clients and contractors accept this course as a recognised qualification in temporary works training

The Temporary Works Supervisor training course is a 1 day course, 8.30 am – 5 pm daily.

Typical fees for open courses are from £230 plus VAT per person dependent on location

We run open Temporary Works courses in our Training Centres in Rainham Kent  and Wandsworth London.

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a Temporary Works Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work.  

All accounts are payable in full prior to the start of any course.  Course results will only be processed once full payment has been received. Results are processed within 7 days of the course end. Should the payment not be received by this date your results will not be processed resulting in your course becoming obsolete. Payment can be made by debit/credit card and bank transfer. Please note that if paying by corporate credit card there is an additional 3% fee.

You may cancel a scheduled course and be refunded all course fees provided more than 30 working days’ notice (working days excludes all statutory bank holidays) is given. All cancellations must be received in writing and acknowledged by Lighthouse Safety Training Ltd.  Delegates may be substituted at any time up to course commencement. In the event of cancellation within the 30-day notice period, the following charges will be applied.

  • More than 7 days to 30 days – ½ fees refundable
  • Less than 7 days – Full fees are payable

In a situation where a course is run exclusively for a customer – at Lighthouse Safety offices, on a customer site or any other alternative venue – the same cancellation terms apply. Should you need or wish to cancel for any reason there is a 48-hour cooling off period, from the date these terms and conditions are signed, where no cancellation fees will be enforced.

If it is necessary for Lighthouse Safety Training Ltd to cancel or reschedule a course, we will endeavour to give a minimum of 7 days’ notice. In such circumstances a full refund or alternative dates will be available and all liability by Lighthouse Safety Training Ltd will be limited to the value of the original course fee. If an attendee(s) should be unable to attend any day of our training courses, we will only accept extenuating circumstances for transfers and this will be at the discretion of Lighthouse Safety Training Ltd as to what the transfer or additional charges will be. Please note: extenuating circumstances does not include work-based issues such as work load or holidays. If a valid medical certificate is not provided for illness, then the candidate will need to attend the full course again and full fees will be payable.
