The Associated General Contractors of America’s Supervisory Training Program (STP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated and field-tested by and for contractors. 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.
The comprehensive 6-course program focuses on the knowledge and skills that every supervisor must have to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials.
Unit 5 | Improving Productivity and Managing Project Costs (2015 Edition) This course covers understanding how project estimates are compiled, how to compare actual project costs with those estimated and how to control costs to meet the estimate.
