Foreman Training Program

Building A Solid Foundation

Participants of this program learn the importance of productivity an develop plans to improve performance on the job following their training. Upon completion of the Foreman Training Program, members have a greater understanding of their role and what it takes to be successful in that position.  This program looks at the leadership role of the foreman as a planner, communicator, production, manager, crew supervisor, and problem solver. Each of these responsibilities is examined in relation to the process of running the three main phases of a project: pre-job/job start-up, peak construction, and project close-out. Numerous tools, tips and techniques are provided as reference for when trainees return home. 

The Foreman Training is a five-day, highly interactive program. An actual project is used from start to finish to allow participants the opportunity to practice applying the skills being learned.

Who Is Eligible?

The Foreman Training Program is for UBC members who have worked as a foreman a minimum of nine months. Participation must be sponsored by supporting contractors. All requests for participation are coordinated through that member’s District Vice-President’s office.
