Supervisory skill—or the lack of it—directly affects every company’s bottom line. Each day decisions made by every foreman and superintendent are crucial to the success or failure of every construction project. You make your money in the field. Or you lose it.
The Supervisory Training Program (STP) developed by AGC, is designed specifically to meet the needs of the construction industry. Developed, updated, and field-tested by and for contractors, the Program consists of 6 courses that focus on the knowledge and skills that every supervisor must have to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials.
