Learners will be presented with a variety of activities, such as case studies, simulations, group work and individual reflection, to ensure that new supervisors practice their problem solving abilities and make better decisions. After completing this course (12 modules) and the course quiz, participants receive a certicate and transcript from the Manitoba Construction Sector Council.
