  View New Online Supervisory Training Program
On Tuesday, March 15, at 1:30 p.m., during AGC’s Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Supervisory Training Program (STP) instructor Bob George will present a demonstration of STP Online.

STP Online is AGC’s response to a survey of AGC chapters about their reasons for not using the traditional STP curriculum.  The chapters indicated that they have a difficult time getting contractors to attend classes in the evening after working hard all day, that they have a difficult time finding good facilitators or instructors, and that the contractors are often too far way from the chapter office or nearest site of STP classes.  The answer for chapters experiencing these obstacles is STP Online.  STP Online provides the instructor, and, because the students participate in much of the class on their own time, the online course is convenient for those with limited time.

For more information about STP Online, click here or call Bob George at (760) 634-2474.
