OJT provides an opportunity for individuals who may be lacking job skills to get them.  This program provides businesses an opportunity to train workers in the specific skills, methods and work habits used in their establishment.  Participants earn wages while they are being trained and then remain employed in a permanent job once their training is completed.


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. Each day, decisions made by every foreman and superintendent are crucial to the success or failure of every construction project. You make your money in the field, and STP can help you improve your organization's bottom line.

Offered locally across the country, STP is a comprehensive 12-course program geared specifically to the topics construction site supervisors need most.
