This comprehensive program provides it all, and is delivered in manageable segments by industry experts with extensive hands-on experience in construction’s ICI sector. Participants have the flexibility to attend modules in any order. Upon completion of all seven sessions participants will be awarded a Building Supervisors into Leaders (ICI) certificate.
