Supervisory Training Program
The AGC of Tennessee is pleased to offer members the opportunity to further develop promising employees into construction supervisors or assist current construction supervisors to enhance their construction supervisory skills via web-based training. While some local AGC of Tennessee branches across the state offer outstanding classroom Supervisor Training courses at their locations, others do not. This new online series meets the needs of those members where STP courses are not offered, where members have schedule conflicts or if they cannot otherwise attend the branch courses. It is not intended to replace the STP classroom course offerings at the branches, but rather to give members another option and complement current branch courses.
This online Supervisory Training Program (STP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated and field-tested by and for contractors. Supervisory skill—or the lack of it—directly affects every company’s bottom line. Construction companies make money in the field, and STP can help improve your organization’s bottom line.
The comprehensive 6-course program focuses on the knowledge and skills that every supervisor must have to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials. The program is delivered via online modules that can be taken anywhere and at anytime following a set curriculum and course guide.
The course outline includes:
Unit 1 | Leadership and Motivation - Available Class April 3- June 2
Establishes the value of effective supervision of workers and improves the construction supervisor’s ability to lead and motivate others.
