The Supervisor Certification Program (SCP) develops highly skilled, confident, and effective supervisors for the union masonry and tile industry. The program helps ensure forepersons and supervisors have the necessary skills to successfully run work on today’s job sites.
If you want to be sure the forepersons and supervisors on your project have learned to become well-rounded leaders through the Supervisor Certification Program, use our sample specification language.
To obtain SCP, craftworkers complete a wide range of coursework to prepare them for every aspect of assuming a leadership role on construction job sites. The program combines lecture with interactive, real-world exercises that reflect the realities of managing complex projects.
The foreperson training program covers:
The Foundations for Safety Leadership program teaches critical leadership skills supervisors can use on the job site to more effectively communicate and work with their crew members to create a stronger jobsite safety climate. The interactive course covers the benefits of effective safety leadership and the costs of ineffective safety leaderships.
The blueprint class covers critical information to successfully interpret project drawings, including:
Six Steps to Mentoring, a part of the Mentorship Matters program, is designed to improve communication and skill transfer on the job site between apprentices and journeyworkers, including supervisors.
The class offers a framework for mentoring by outlining 6 steps that can be applied to any teaching scenario: identifying the point of the lesson, linking the lesson, demonstrating the skill, providing opportunity for the mentee to practice, giving feedback, and assessing progress.
The OSHA-30-hour training course is specifically devised for safety directors, forepersons, and field supervisors with responsibility for worksite health and safety. Emphasis is placed on hazard identification, avoidance, control, and prevention along with complete information on OSHA compliance.
The CPR and First Aid training equips non-medical professionals to respond to a wide variety of common conditions to help keep patients in stable condition in first-response situations. Modules covered include wounds, heart, fractures, burns, poisoning, hemorrhages, choking, shock, and other injuries.
SCP is offered at The BAC/IMI John J. Flynn International Training Center outside Washington, DC and regional BAC training centers. Much of the SCP coursework is also offered online.
