New courses include a Service Contractor’s Management Course and a Foreman/Superintendent Training Course.
Also during 2001, the Kohler/Foundation Seminar Series will be expanded, and the Managing PHC Projects Course at Purdue University will be refined based on feedback from contractor auditors.
“We anticipate over 25 Kohler/Foundation seminars will be conducted in 2001,” said Gerard Kennedy, chief operating officer of the Educational Foundation. “Working hand-in-hand with local PHCC Chapters allows us reach contractors on this local level.”
Two other new programs have been initiated. The “Personnel Notebook,” a monthly bulletin on personnel management issues is being provided to PHCC members on a regular basis. Also, the “Focus” newsletter with information on Foundation programs and its benefits to contractors is being distributed.
“[Our] Seminars touch on all aspects of managing your business from pre-construction planning to change order procedures to managing a service and repair business. We have a seminar for every contractor,” said Kennedy.
