Becoming a foreman is an important step on the career ladder in the trades; yet too often one is just elevated to the position without any training. The status quo has been “that is how I was treated by my foreman, so that is how I will deal with you.”

There is a better way, and ICBA’s How To Be A Better Foreman course is here to help give you the tools to succeed.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of field leadership, organization, crew morale, efficiency and productivity in this one-day course. You’ll also learn the valuable skill of dealing with workplace conflict without being a jerk, and understand how you play a major role in increasing jobsite productivity. This course has been offered for several years, training over one hundred people; it’s one of our most popular workshops! Here’s what some of our past participants have said:

  • “Well-structured, informative course.”
  • “All of the content was quite relevant. It was a very valuable seminar.”
  • “Covered a lot of different topics.”
  • “Very good course.”

We’re offering the course in Victoria and Burnaby in August; we often fill the course so don’t procrastinate in signing up! For more information on these courses and others, or to register, please visit And remember, you don’t have to be a member of ICBA to take our courses.
