A two day training course designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. It is also designed to give confidence to senior management and those who engage contractors.

Participating delegates will reach an assessed standard of knowledge and be awarded a CSkills Site Safety Plus Certificate on successful completion.

The training course was launched by the CITB in response to recent efforts to tighten procedural control on Temporary Works projects, whereby the construction industry issued a mandate that all Temporary Works Co-ordinators are to hold CSkills certification.

It has the support of a number of organisations: CITB, Temporary Works Forum CECA, UKCG, HSE and FMB, making it transferable across industry.

ICE Training is a Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) approved training centre.




Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs.
