Supervisory Training Program

AGC’s 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. 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, and STP can help you improve your organization's bottom line.

STP Participants are likely to have various titles depending on the kind of work they perform, the geographical location of their projects, and the size of their company. Individuals attending STP courses include anyone on a construction jobsite in a supervisory role - from the new supervisor and foreman to the experienced superintendent who are looking to become a more effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials.

Offered locally across the country, STP is a comprehensive 12-course program geared specifically to the topics construction site supervisors need most.
