COATINGSPRO JULY 2018 13 TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES Supervisory Training Program e Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) is the leading associa- tion for the construction industry.

More than 10,500 service providers and suppliers are also associated with AGC, all through a nationwide network of chapters. AGC's Supervisory Training Program (STP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated, and field-tested by and for contractors. Each day, decisions made in the field are crucial to the success or failure of every construction project. Individuals attending STP courses include anyone on a construction jobsite in a supervi- sory role — from the new supervisor or foreman to the experienced super- intendent who is looking to become a more effective manager of people, time, equipment, and materials. is course presents a body of knowledge and skills that today's construction supervisors need in order to be effective commu- nicators in person, in writing, and via electronic communication methods. Participants also learn the arts of persuasion and negotiation, how to handle a confrontation, how to hold an effective conversation, and the crucial art of listening. Supervisory skill — or the lack of it — directly affects every company's bottom line. You make your money in the field, and STP can help you improve your organization's bottom line. e Oral and Written Communication unit takes place on August 18, 2018, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
