COATINGSPRO NOVEMBER 2015 15 TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES NRCA's For Foremen Only, Level 1 Te National Roofng Contractors Association (NRC A) is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofng professionals. It is the leading authority in the roofng industry for information, education, technol- ogy, and advocacy. Founded in 1886, NRC A is a nonproft association that represents all segments of the roofng industry, including contrac- tors, manufacturers, distributors, architects, consultants, engineers, building owners, and county, city, and state government agencies. NRC A's mission is to inform and assist the roofng industry, act as its principal advocate, and help members in serving their customers. NRC A continually strives to enhance every aspect of the roofng industry. NRC A is offering a For Foremen Only, Level 1 course in Denver, Colo., on Friday, Dec. 11. For Foremen Only is a program focusing on communication, leadership, and management skills for field managers. The roofing industr y is filled with foremen and superin- tendents who are incredibly adept at expertly installing roof systems and who were promoted because of that expertise. Unfortunately, these individuals often do not possess equal levels of leadership, communica- tion, and management skills needed to effectively run their crews. This program introduces the concept that managing, leading, and communi- cating are tools that are needed to be a truly successful middle manager. It also uses interactive exercises to practice using these new tools to become effective crew leaders.
