Description

About Construction Supervisor Training (CST):

CST puts an emphasis on practical knowledge, providing participants with the skills and resources needed to excel at new challenges on the job site. This comprehensive program provides it all and is delivered in manageable segments by Subject Matter Experts.

CST is comprised of 8 Modules:

Modules may be taken in any order, but it is recommended that you begin the program by taking Oh Crap, I’m a Supervisor. Upon completing all 8 modules you will be able to register for the CST program graduation ceremony where you will be presented with a Construction Supervisor Training (ICI) Certificate of Achievement.

Individuals are free to take any Construction Supervisor Training module without pursuing the Certificate.

Human Resources Practices:

Construction supervisors often play a key role in ensuring human resource regulations, policies and practices are applied fairly and consistently on the work site. To do so, supervisors need to interpret and apply human resource management policies and practices as defined by the company and/or by the industry.

The Human Resource Practices module is intended to help you gain a clear understanding of your roles and responsibilities related to the application of human resource policies and legislation. You will discuss human resource related legislation such as employment standards and workplace health and safety. You will also look at common policy areas such as employee selection, training and development, harassment, substance abuse, attendance policies and your responsibilities for applying these policies on the worksite.

With this 6 hour module you will be provided with lunch and you will earn 1 Gold Seal Credit.
