CIF Temporary Works Coordinator Two Day Programme
Training Course Information
This innovative CIF 2 day course is designed to provide those on site who have responsibility for supervising temporary works with the essential knowledge to deliver on this often contentious area of construction activity. It is also suitable for builders and specialist contractors, utilities, civil engineering contractors, supervisors, graduates and site engineers wishing to begin the educational journey to become competent Temporary Works Co-Ordinators.
The course is based on Section 2 Procedural control of temporary works of BS 5975:2019 and includes one day tutor lead legislative guidance and a second day of workshop providing the essential practical aspect of Temporary Works Co ordination. Detailed, well-designed course hand-outs are issued – but the program does not involve structural calculations.
This two day program as a stand alone program, will not make the learner competent unless they have previous knowledge, experience and training but will serve to provide essential information in achieving the right information on your educational journey.
