There is no approval process for Construction Supervision Fundamentals (CSF) instructors, but it is encouraged to have instructors complete the instructor registration form. Many CSF instructors are field personnel with instructional training, seasoned superintendents or project managers, qualified human resource directors, or others within the firm.
Each class must be facilitated using AGC’s course materials, including each participant having their own Participant’s Manual, the course materials being presented in their original format, and each course being held to their intended duration.
All instructors must use the most current edition of the Instructor’s Guide and the PowerPoint presentation provided below.
Course administrators/instructors should upload their completed roster to the curriculum upload center following the completion of the course. Please note you must be signed in to your AGC account in order to upload a course roster. This roster will be used, in addition to the Participant Registration and Evaluation online survey, to verify contact and completion information.
AGC wants your feedback to improve this course and the manuals used to present it. As an instructor, you are asked to make comments about your experience in this course through the online evaluation found at www.agc.org/CSF/Instructor_Evaluation. Your comments will help AGC make this course more effective in the future.
Further resources and guidance are provided here to help Construction Supervision Fundamentals instructors and understand the instructor registration process and their responsibilities in delivering training. Please familiarize yourself with all materials before submitting an instructor registration form.
The content and activities for the Supervisory Training Program are supported by a comprehensive set of instructor resources available here. The materials include the CSF Instructor’s Resource Document, PowerPoint Presentations for each unit, Video instructor Orientations and blueprints.
The Instructor Resource Document is a guide for instructors to follow and covers tops such as classroom set up and delivery as well as the design of the materials. It is intended to provide the necessary guidance to facilitate the CSF program. Click the button below to download the documents:
CFS hard copy manuals will soon be available for purchase on AGC's online store and eBooks will soon be available for purchase on Amazon.com.
Once the requirements have been met prospective instructors must complete the online Instructor Registration Form. When completing the form, applicants must select specific examples of requirements listed, provide current contact information and upload their curriculum vitae.

Instructors should be well-versed in the contents of the course materials, knowledgeable of the course format and committed to helping the attendees achieve the course learning objectives. AGC of America welcomes and encourages instructors to add personal experiences, case studies, examples, exercises and visual aids.
In addition to having excellent communication and listening skills, facilitators must:
- Be skilled at leading class activities and ensuring that learners actively engage with course content and activities.
- Encourage everyone’s participation in the discussions, keeping the group focused and on track without dominating discussion and group processes.
- Expect to spend between 16 to 24 hours preparing and familiarizing themselves with the materials.
- Maintain a positive attitude and professional approach to the presentation of course material.
