Superintendent Career Training

Superintendent Career Training (SCT) is a comprehensive career advancement program that equips foremen with the knowledge and skills to advance to the superintendent level.

The concept of the SCT program is to closely integrate both the technical aspects of construction jobsite management and the personal/career development needs of the individual trainee. Classroom instruction, company-sponsored mentoring, and on-the-job training deliver skill training customized to the individual needs of the sponsoring contractor and the trainee.

Technical and managerial issues based on plans and case studies encompass a broad cross-section of construction technologies, including mechanical, industrial, commercial, residential and tilt-up construction. Using the construction design documents from the UBC's International Training Center--which comprises commercial and residential structures, an industrial power generation facility, and warehousing components--a foundation is laid for a comprehensive understanding of the construction supervisor’s roles and responsibilities.

The case studies with ITC plans include hands-on individual and group exercises, which reinforce discussions and instruction. Delivered in four individual programs at the ITC, the structured, concentrated learning components are integrated with mentor sessions and on-the-job learning throughout the 18-month program.
