AGC’s Supervisory Training Program (STP) is a comprehensive six-course program focusing on the knowledge and skills that every supervisor must have to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials.

The comprehensive six-course certificate program is based on AGC of America’s curriculum and will benefit anyone on a construction jobsite who is in, or aspires to, a supervisory role. The STP curriculum creates an unmatched learning experience for participants. Every STP course is activity-based, with discussions, case histories, problems, on-the-job training, and exercises. Participants in STP courses draw upon their field experience and learn by interaction with others from all areas of the construction industry.
