FEATURED COURSE
Supervisor Training Program (STP)
October 29 - November 24, 2020
(Virtual Classroom via ZOOM)
Member Discount - 35%

Foremen and Supervisors are instrumental to the success of a construction project. While they are provided with the equipment, materials, and personnel they need, they are too often left without the most important tool — the knowledge to manage, motivate and direct their workforce.

The STP provides valuable productivity, communication, and time management skills to help foremen and supervisors coach, connect and create a respectful workplace for their teams.
