Program Overview:

The Superintendent Training Program (STP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated, and field-tested by and for contractors. Superintendent skills – or the lack of them – directly affect every company’s bottom line. You make money in the field, and the STP can help you improve your organization’s bottom line. This comprehensive six-unit program focuses on the knowledge and skills that every supervisor must have to effectively manage people, time, equipment, and materials.

The STP curriculum creates an unmatched learning experience for participants. Every STP unit is activity based, with discussions, case histories, problems, and exercises. Participants in STP units draw upon their field experience and learn by interacting with others from all areas of the construction industry. The six STP units account for 120 hours of in-class instruction. Each unit is divided into multiple sessions. The program’s structure allows for flexibility so that units can be taught in several different formats. Units do not have to be taken in numerical order.

All six units are required for STP certification – the program’s structure allows for flexibility in completion. Units do not need to be taken in numerical order*

Individuals who complete the six Superintendent Training Units will receive a Superintendent Training Program certificate of completion.*
