Read a brief blog for more information regarding the STP program.

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 your 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 superintendent must have to be an effective manager of 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 interaction with others from all areas of the construction industry. The six STP units account for a total of 120 hours of in-class instruction. Each unit is divided into multiple sessions. The structure of the program allows for flexibility so that units can be taught in several different formats. Units do not have to be taken in numerical order.
