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.

Program Structure

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.
