"I would like to thank the AGC Education Foundation for the recent Foreman Training Program. The content of this course was relevant to what our current and future Foremen experience on the job and while managing a crew. The instructor is a working site Superintendent and draws from his years of construction experience to relay experiences to the class in a way that is understandable and real. I would recommend this course to any construction Foreman or those aspiring to become a construction Foreman."

“By utilizing Lean Construction Pull Planning, we were able to shave two weeks from our four-month schedule. This resulted in a more efficient delivery, lower construction costs, greater quality, and an even more satisfied customer. The concepts we learned in the Lean Construction Certification Program have been integral for this transformation.”

This leadership series is important for the industry because much of the content is not taught elsewhere. It is learned on the job, sometimes at great expense. This is a way for me to help an industry that has given me much more than I could ever give back.”
