Who Should Attend: Effective Work Planning for Foremen is designed for foremen of all levels of experience and all trades. It also serves as a good back-to-basics refresher for superintendents. 

Overview: This course aims to provide foremen with a strong model that will improve their crews’ and company’s performance. The course focuses on providing a strong foundational knowledge of task planning that can be applied to any work and is equally applicable to the foremen of trade and general contractors. Using an interactive on-line presentation and practical individual and group exercises, attendees are taken through a back-to-basics approach to work planning. Coming out of the course, attendees will have built their own plan and 2 week lookahead schedule for an example activity.

Learners will strengthen their skills by gaining a strong foundation in practical task planning. Working with hands-on, practical exercises, they work through the various elements needed to put together a complete activity plan for their crew. Course topics include calculating manpower needs, determining material and equipment needs, building quality and safety into the plan and much more!
