Crew Leader Training

Utility and excavation projects get done most efficiently if workers are divided into crews with a common purpose.  When a crew is formed to tackle a particular job, one person is appointed as the leader. This person is usually an experienced professional with demonstrated and exceptional leadership qualities. But an effective crew leader must have specific job skills to run a crew.

NUCA’s Essential Skills for Crew Leaders Training is a two-day, intensive course that trains workers to be effective leaders and communicators so they can provide clear direction to your crew, and plan and schedule the crew’s work to maximize safety, production, and profit. This training is made possible by the NUCA University and the NUCA Institute for Leadership Development.
