Supervisor Training Class Overview

What is the goal of the Supervisor Training Class?

The goal of the Supervisor Training class is to prepare candidates for a Supervisor position in a new company with a new job. Being a Supervisor can be difficult. Whereas the individual may have previously been successful by their own skill and ability, now they must be able to rely on others and still have the same success with a team.

Supervisor Training Class Description

The key to being a good Supervisor is accomplishing the job by being able to lead a team. The 5 video Supervisor course and accompanying 73 page manual are designed for the new Supervisor who may not have been in that leadership position before or as a refresher for returning Supervisors. It starts by defining the Supervisor’s role by outlining a Supervisor’s responsibilities, required skills, and the problems routinely faced by the Supervisor.
