Foreman Training Program


What is the Foreman Training Program

Foremen are on the frontline of every company’s success. Every day, foremen and superintendents make decisions that are critical to the success or failure of construction projects. This training provides foremen with advanced knowledge and skills to improve your company’s bottom line.

This highly interactive training program focuses on the knowledge and skills every foreman and superintendent must master to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment, and materials. This program is designed to improve supervisory skills and create a sense of association with the mechanical contractor and our industry.

This training program builds on the foreman’s already complex responsibilities, with courses in influencing, negotiating, and conflict resolution; time management and delegation; document management; becoming a safety leader; situational leadership; client and customer relations; planning and scheduling; and quality assurance and control.

  • Provide tools to handle difficult management situations with greater certainty in decision-making.
  • Develop skills to create an environment of collaboration, teamwork, and trust to motivate others excel.
