Supervisor Micro-Certification Program
Empowering Supervisors to Lead
CLAC’s Supervisor Micro-Certification Program (SMCP) empowers construction supervisors with the skills to be people-centric team leaders rather than simply task-focused managers, resulting in
- safer workplaces,
- better communication,
- reduced disruptive conflict, and
- increased productivity.
Who Should Take this Program?
New or experienced construction supervisors, forepersons, lead hands, and those with strong leadership potential.
SMCP is a series of instructor-led modules—six core modules and four optional master modules. Each module is approximately 3.5 hours long. The program can be completed over a number of months to suit the participant’s schedule.
Supervisors will also have access to mentorship support and a library of leadership resources to enhance their ongoing development.
